Caption: Marble quarry. Marble has been quarried in the hills above Carrara in Italy for more than 2000 years. Marble is a metamorphic rock, formed when limestone is altered by processes within the Earth, for example extreme pressure or temperature. This fine white marble is used for building and sculpture. Michelangelo used marble from Carrara for his sculptures.
