There is more information available on this subject at Marble on the English Wikipedia.

Marble is a non-foliated metamorphic rock resulting from the metamorphism of limestone, composed mostly of calcite (a crystalline form of calcium carbonate, CaCO3). Marble is known for its hardness, durability, and glossy properties. It is extensively used for sculpture, as a building material, and in many other applications.

Humans as of the 26th century occasionally use marble as a building material; for example, the Côte d'Azur Museum of Natural History, built to resemble an ancient Greek temple, was constructed mainly of marble.[1]

The Covenant also use marble as a decorative material, such as the black marble used to make the San'Shyuum clerics' pestle and mortar.[2]
