Marble is a metamorphic stone, which means that it is a rock that changes composition over time from one rock to another. In marble's case, limestone or dolomite are softened over time under conditions of intense heat and pressure, and then are recrystallized as marble
Marble is a rating of between 2 and 5 on the Mohs scale of hardness for rocks and minerals, which means that it is a comparatively soft stone.
Marble is available in a rainbow of colors from pink, red, grey, green, brown and even black. Veined, streaked and other colored marbles are created from mineral impurities present when marble is formed, including sand, silt, clay and iron oxide.

Granite is a common widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock which is granular and crystalline in texture. This rock consists mainly of quartz, mica, and feldspar. Occasionally some individual crystals (phenocrysts) are larger than the groundmass, in which case the texture is known as porphyritic.
A granitic rock with a porphyritic texture is sometimes known as a porphyry. Granites can be pink to gray in color, depending on their chemistry and mineralogy. By definition, granite is an igneous rock with at least 20% quartz by volume.
Granite differs from granodiorite in that at least 35% of the feldspar in granite is alkali feldspar as opposed to plagioclase; it is the alkali feldspar that gives many granites a distinctive pink color. Outcrops of granite tend to form tors and rounded massifs. Granites sometimes occur in circular depressions surrounded by a range of hills, formed by the metamorphic aureole or hornfels. Granite is usually found in the continental plates of the Earth's crust.
