Any limestone or dolomite that can take a high polish and still be usable. It is generally formed from limestone undergoing metamorphism. When exposed to extremes of pressure or heat limestone turns into calcite or dolomite crystals, which are the primary materials in marble. The ancient Greeks built their architecture, cities, and sculptures often from Pentelic and Parian Marbles, quarried in Greece. The Romans later used marble in their buildings as well, quarrying in the Greek spots and finding quarries of their own. Marble is, in a lot of ways, what the classical and Hellenistic age was built from.
