Marble is a metamorphic rock that is made up of recrystallized carbonate minerals, typically Calcite or Dolomite. Marble can be foliated (repetitively layered metamorphic rock), and in Geology, Marble refers to metamorphised limestone, and is used frequently in sculptures or as a building material.
Since Cinnabar in its natural form cannot be worn due to its toxic nature, these marble beads have been made to imitate Cinnabar's vibrant color. The color ranges from a pale peachy orange to a more rustic orange, along with pale white accenting.
Historically marble has been the most common medium for ancient Greek and Roman sculptures and architecture, which means that much of the most beloved sculptures today would not exist without this fascinating metamorphic rock.
