Marble is a metamorphic rock consisting of Limestone but composed mostly of Calcite.  It is used extensively for sculpture, building materials and has many decorative uses.  The pure white Marble is probably the most common form known, but the characteristic swirls and veins of many colored Marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as Clay, Silt, Sand, Iron Oxides or Chert.

Peacock Marble is from Southwest China and formed in Limestone by heat and pressure in the earth's crust. Recrystallization during Himalaya formation caused the limestone to change in texture and makeup. Fossilized materials along with it's original carbonate minerals, recrystallized and formed large, coarse grains of calcite. Impurities present in the limestone during the recrystallization affected the mineral composition of the marble.  The minerals that result from the impurities give the marble up to ten different colors.
