Expensive Marble Stone
We have the most Expensive Marble Stone which is Yule Marble it is a premium white marble.
Yule Marble is found in the West Elk Mountains of Colorado discovered in 1873.
Yes that’s correct not only Italy, Greece and Turkey here in the United States we have some of the best marble in the world!
Yule is 99.5% pure calcite giving it a very smooth texture and luminous surface therefore it is beautiful for counter tops, buildings, art, and projects.
Yule’s size of the deposits allows for large blocks to be quarried, it is a weather resistant marble of metamorphosed limestone.
Henry Bacon urged the Yule Marble be used for the Lincoln Memorial because of aesthetic value in spite of the cost.
Quarrying is a challenge due to high altitude (9,300 feet above sea level), steep slopes, deep snow, and snow-mud slides in the winter.
Even advances in technology have not helped to eliminate these challenges.
This location has 5 quarries and only one is in operation today.
There has been highs and lows with the use of this marble due to the challenges to access.
Yule Marble is found in the Yule Creek Valley in Marble, Colorado.
It is shipped to other parts of the world: Italy, Saudi Arabia, Peru, and other international locations.
The quality of Yule Marble made it the choice for use in the basement of the Colorado Capitol, Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Other buildings throughout the country were also built with Yule Marble.
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier currently being renovated.
It is made of the largest single block of marble produced in the United States.
Colorado state known for Majestic Rocky Mountains, had no official state rock.
Girl Scout Troop 357 requested that Yule become the state rock.
Yule marble became the “official state rock” of Colorado in 2004 @ the request of Girl Scout Troop 357.
Colorado is the Centennial State.
Each state contributed a 20″ x 40″ rock to line the inside of the monument, Colorado chose the Yule Marble.
Yule can also be found in:
Colorado State Capitol building, Chessman Memorial, Colorado State Museum and the Denver Court House.
I’m sure there are many locations throughout the country and world that utilize this beautiful marble.
Yule Marble has withstood 100 years in DC winter and humid summers.
That makes it a very durable option for any project.
