Calcite Marble

Basic Information
Author: Bain, G. W.
Description:Thermal metamorphism of bituminous limestone to white marble by hot solutions flowing along bedding planes in the original rock is not generally recognized. Most marble deposits in North America, especially those of Vermont, indicate this to be the most important process in development of crystalline marbles. Vermont calcite marble deposits extend along a zone of lower Ordovician sediments outcropping from the northwest corner of the state to the middle of the southern border.
