Origin

Marble is formed as a resultant of metamorphism of sedimentary carbonate rocks. Carbonate rocks are mostly limestone and dolomite rock. The Metamorphism process recrystallises the original carbonate mineral grains. The resultant marble rock is composed of interlocking mosaic of carbonate crystals. Primary Sedimentary textures are completely changed than.
Green Marble is found in the Aravali Ranges. The exact location is in Udaipur and nearby area Kesariyaji. The deposits are spread over all the nearby villages. The extraction is done after the permission of government. There are almost 250-400 quarries in the area.
