Winchester’s Marble House, A Little Tuscany in Massachusetts

Jun 19, 2013

Home 9 Historic 9 Winchester’s Marble House, A Little Tuscany in Massachusetts

This week we are working in Tuscany…I mean Winchester, Massachusetts.

Built in 1986, this 7000 square foot gated estate boasts white marble from floor to its 18 foot ceilings. The exquisite Corinthian Columns line the foyer and set the stage for the white marble magnificence that lies within.

What is Marble and White Marble?

Marble is a non-foliated metamorphic rock made of recrystallized carbonate minerals like calcite or dolomite. Geologists use the term marble to refer to metamorphosed limestone but stone masons use the term more broadly to include unmetamorphosed limestone. Marble is used in sculpture and as a building material.

Pure white marble is the result of metamorphism of a very pure limestone or dolomite protolith. The characteristic swirls and veins of many colored marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as clay, silt,sand, iron oxides, or chert which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone.
