Rainforest Gold Marble
Rainforest Gold Marble: It is a Bidasar Gold Marble, which is of medium brown to gold colour, with heavily veined Serpentinite with dark brown gold and white veins.
Stonedepot is one of the largest traders of this gemstone globally. In the international market, this stone is nominated as marble. Still, it is nominated as Serpentinite around the application of the European Standard. The veining and colour vary considerably, and a small sample of Rainforest Gold Marble may not represent the whole slab. Hence, swatch samples must be approved for large projects to ensure that the blocks are all extracted from the same quarry face for matching purposes.
A clear epoxy resin filler can fill any micro fissures or tiny pits during polishing. However, it does not affect the integrity of the stone; it merely provides an even smoother surface finish. Rainforest Gold Marble is ideal for interior and exterior use, although polish is only constant inside.
Products: Suitable for construction projects, both commercial and domestic, prefabricated countertops and worktops, vanities, tiles, backsplashes, paving, fireplaces, and memorials.
Surface Finish: Rainforest Gold Marble looks best with a gloss polished surface but is also available as honed, leather/satin, river-washed/antique, thermal/flamed, brushed, and sandblast finishes.
Sealing: Test with a small sample. It is possible that a sealant could be used on Rainforest Gold. However, excessive attempts at sealing it could create a residue film build-up.
Block Sizes: This is a quarry yielding selectable grades of marble with blocks suitable for gangsaw size down to economical tile-sized blocks. For commercial projects, it is important to ensure that blocks are selected from the same quarry face.
Stonedepot usually exports rough blocks, but intermodal containerization is available at an extra cost. Finished products are packed into seaworthy wooden crates and loaded into containers.
Quarry Location: Rainforest Gold Marble is quarried near Bidasar, Rajasthan, India. Several quarries of Rainforest Gold Marble vary in shade and veining.
Synonyms: Bidazar Gold, Bidzar Gold, Gold Multicolor, Cafe Gold, Fancy Gold, Forest Gold, Bidaser Gold, Bidaser Gold Sandstone, Golden Glory, Mirage Gold, Oakwood Gold, Rain Forest Gold.
Marble is a metamorphosed limestone composed of very pure calcium carbonate, CaCO3. The softness of marble and its relative isotropy and homogeneity make it desirable for sculpture and building stone.
Although marble comes from limestone, the temperatures, and pressures necessary to form marble usually destroy any fossils that may have been present in the limestone.
Marble derives its name from the Greek marmaros, a shining stone. [source: OED2]. This stem is the basis for the English word marmoreal, meaning “marble-like”. In folklore, marble is associated with the astrological sign of Gemini. Pure white marble is an emblem of purity. It is also an emblem of immortality and an ensurer of success in education.
Serpentine is one of a group of hydrous magnesium-rich silicate minerals. The composition of these common rock-forming minerals approximates Mg3Si2O5(OH)4. Serpentinite is a rock composed of one or more serpentine group minerals. Minerals in this group are formed by serpentinization, a hydration and metamorphic transformation of ultra-mafic rock from the Earth’s mantle.
