Marble has been used in construction sites for thousands of years and is still a valued material. But have you ever wondered where it comes from? Today's video shows you the process of getting marble from a quarry to your home. It is always fascinating for everyone to watch machines complete easily enormous jobs. Especially machines for processing natural materials. Has anyone else noticed that? Fun Fact: Marble actually has a MOISTURE content and architects may have to specify what marble can be used, such as cladding on high rise buiildings in areas of extreme wind or cold. Inotherwords, certain marble is almost a brand name source: "correct" green marble that meets those specs may only be available from Canada or Brazil. There is marble in Quebec on an island in Hudsons' Bay that has mossy green, infused with real gold. It's cut in blocks and shipped directly to Italy to be cut. Looking at this I wonder how many thousands of years ago the 80 ton blocks of granite and limestone were cut to build the great pyramid in Egypt, with just copper hand tools? , very interesting video I always wondered how stone of this size was handled. Amazing process! I have granite from Brazil in my kitchen. I am to assume the entire process would be very much the same as it is with marble. Good video!
