1. Oriental White Marble origin and chemical analysis

Oriental White is quarried in Baoxing County, Ya’an district, Sichuan Province, China. It also acts like the onyx with the pure and flawless texture, which can compare favorably with Italian Carrara Marble. The rocks are all white fine-grained marble, mainly composed of calcite (97~99%), unevenly containing a small amount of dolomite, and partially containing a small amount of sericite, quartz and albite minerals. Granular structure, dense block structure.

2. Oriental White Marble Inspection Method:

Normally people will make some inspection to test the quality of oriental white marble good or bad, but not everyone is familiar with the method, here are some small tips for your reference as below:

A, Putting the ink to the stone back side:

If the ink is scattered and leached everywhere, it means that the inner particles of the stone are loose and the quality is poor. If the ink droplet does not penetrate, it may mean the stone is relatively dense and the water absorption rate is lower, quality good,the water absorption rate of Oriental White is around 0.24%. But sometimes the droplet may not penetrate as it is coated with a water-prooving sealer in the surface and backside.

B, Dropping the vinegar to test the marble it is:

Vinegar will react with marble to form calcium carbonate. Dropping the vinegar on the marble will change the surface of the stone to be rough, which can be seen as true marble. This method is workable, but it may need a long time for reaction because the acidity of acetic acid is weak. The reaction will be more obvious if with dilute hydrochloric acid.

C, Tapping the marble for sounding:

Tapping the marble, and pay attention to the sound. If the sound is crisp, thenthe stone texture is fine, uniform and without cracks; if the sound is hoar, it may mean that the marble has cracks inside and loose texture. This test can only show that the texture of the stone is hard, brittle and with high strength, and can not be used as a criterion for judging whether the stone is good or bad, as the sound emitted by the stone is also related to the variety and size.
