Excerpt: Yule Marble is a marble of metamorphosed limestone found only in the Yule Creek Valley, in the West Elk Mountains of Colorado, 2.8 miles (4.5 km) southeast of the town of Marble, Colorado. First discovered in 1873, it is quarried today inside a mountain at 9,300 feet (2,800 m) above sea level, in contrast to most marble, which is quarried from an open pit and at much lower elevations. The localized geology created a marble that is 99.5% pure calcite with a grain structure that gives a smooth texture, a homogeneous look, and a luminous surface. It is these qualities for which it was selected to clad the exterior of the Lincoln Memorial and a variety of buildings throughout the country in spite of being more expensive than other marbles. The size of the deposits enables large blocks to be quarried, which is why the marble for the Tomb of the Unknowns, with its 56-ton die block, was quarried from Yule Marble. Yule's quality comes at a high price due to the cost of quarrying in a high altitude mountain environment. This challenge has caused the industry and the town of Marble to undergo many boom and bust periods since quarrying started in the mid 1880s, making the town emblematic of the economic fluctuations that beset a single-industry economy. Technology advancements in quarrying machinery and transportation have reduced but not solved the cost problem that afflicts the operation through the present. Cross Section: Yule Marble deposit of the present day quarry. The granite of the Treasure Mountain Dome is visible on the right Geologic Map of Yule Creek Valley - US Geological Survey. Full-size map, zoomable.The forces that created Yule Marble make it distinct from all other American marbles. It was formed by contact metamorphism, unlike Vermont marble and Georgia marble, which are the result of regional metamorphism, a process more associated with the orogeny and erosion of mountain ranges on a regional scale. Tennessee marble did not undergo metamorphism, so is not t. Seller Inventory # LIE9781157715115
