Marbles are used principally for buildings and monuments, interior decoration, statuary, tabletops, and novelties. Colour and appearance are their most important qualities.

The ability to transmit light is important for statuary marble, which achieves its luster from light penetrating from about 12.7 to 38 mm (0.5 to 1.5 inches) from where it is reflected at the surfaces of deeper lying crystals.
