3 Types of Popular Wood Marble and How to Choose

Wood marble block is a beautiful and unique type of sedimentary rock. Unlike other sedimentary blocks, which are made up of interlocking grains of minerals, wood marble is made up of interlocking grains of wood. This makes it a very strong and durable rock, perfect for use in construction and other applications. Wood marble is typically found in marine environments, where the water has helped to depose the wood over time. This process can take millions of years to complete, making wood marble a very precious commodity.

Wood marble generally belongs to a kind of marble, and wood stone belongs to sandstone. Wood grains are produced in the Cambrian strata and belong to marine sediments, which are iron-rich argillaceous dolomite. It can be used for floor, stone lines, wall cladding, tabletop, skirting lines, stair steps, and special-shaped stones. It is a popular marble material.

There are many kinds of marble with wood grain and different colors. Due to different processing and cutting methods, the longitudinal cutting is wood grain, and the transverse cutting can show water grain or texture similar to annual rings.

Here are three types of popular Wood Marble:

It’s the whitest wood marble. There are more than a dozen quarries of White wood marble, and only a few quarries can really mine good slabs. High-quality White wood marble should be crack-free, free of red lines and fewer crystal lines, and the price of such perfect slabs tends to be high.

Grey Wood Marble

Grey wood is dark color background of wood grain marble which quarried in Guizhou, China. It’s the cheaper wood grain marble.

Black Wave Marble

Also named Black wood, Silver wave, Kenya wave. It’s a material perfect for bookmatch.

TEXTURE

The texture of wood grain stone is novel and fashionable, and it is the most beautiful scenery in the interior. Whether it is a floor or a wall, it can be integrated into the design and complement each other. In the design space, the brightness, tone, purity and texture of the wood grain stone color can give people a clear, neat, beautiful and generous impression.

 

Wood marble is a kind of limestone, the main component is calcium carbonate (CaCO3).

Powder structure Although the texture and pattern are similar to those of marble, there are obvious differences compare with other marble materials. One of the important features, the formation process of limestone, has not undergone the same metamorphosis and crystallization as marble.

This gives limestone a fine powder structure in structure. It seems dense, but in fact it is essentially different from the crystal structure in marble and granite.

Physical properties Limestone is fragile, and its flexural bulk density, camber, and compressive strength are not high.

High water absorption The calcium carbonate composition and powder structure make the water absorption of limestone generally high. We have had similar experiences on unprotected wood grain stones: Some water, sprinkled on the wood grain stone, is like being absorbed by a sponge, and quickly seeps into the interior of the stone. This feature is obviously different from the reaction of being sprinkled on the surface of marble, granite and other stones.

The texture of wood marble is novel and fashionable, and it is the most beautiful scenery in the interior. Whether it is a floor or a wall, it can be integrated into the design and complement each other. In the design space, the brightness, tone, purity and texture of the wood grain stone color can give people a clear, beautiful and generous impression.
