5 reasons to choose Green marble for your next Luxury project
Coloured Marble in Architecture: Applications of Green marble in interior & exterior design
During the late Classical and the Hellenistic periods, coloured marble started being widely used in luxurious palaces, mausoleums and complete interiors.
Combined with gold and silver, as well as other precious materials, coloured marble was used to highlight social status. The Romans found coloured marble to be very appealing and so they imported green, red, grey and black marbles from Greece. They used coloured marbles in grandiose private residences and luxurious villas, from columns to entire walls and floors.
The love of the Romans for coloured marble proved to be timeless, as their aesthetics have influenced architecture and interiors up to modern times and the use of coloured marble became more sophisticated. Significant buildings were created with beautiful, coloured marbles, from the Pantheon in Rome, dated to 120 A.D. to the Barcelona Pavilion in 1929. The eminent architect Mies van der Rohe, created one of the most significant exhibition buildings of the 20th century that showcased a free-standing wall made of red onyx, as well as green Tinos marble.
Colored marble is widely used nowadays, in stunning luxury interiors, from vanity areas of bold powder rooms to imposing wall cladding and lavish floors.
Green Marble: what it is and how it is created
The composition of marble stone is formed by calcite or by the combination of calcite and dolomite. Green marble is composed by a high concentration of minerals serpentite and chlorite, as well as lower concentration of calcite and magnetite. The stunningly rich green colour of a variety of tones is interrupted by light coloured veins that are cracks filled with calcite. The mineral impurities of green marble create beautiful hues of dark to light green, as well as forest and emerald ones
