Marble is a non-foliated metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Geologists use the term marble to refer to metamorphosed limestone; however stonemasons use the term more broadly to encompass unmetamorphosed limestone. Marble is commonly used for sculpture and as a building material. Onyx is a banded variety of chalcedony. Chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline form of silica, composed of very fine intergrowths of the minerals quartz and moganite. These are both silica minerals, but they differ in that quartz has a trigonal crystal structure, while moganite is monoclinic. Chalcedony's standard chemical structure (based on the chemical structure of quartz) is SiO2 (Silicon Dioxide). The colours of its bands range from white to almost every colour (save some shades, such as purple or blue). Commonly, specimens of onyx contain bands of black and/or white. APPLICATIONS: Marble is largely used by the construction industry, whereas, for furniture and other decorative purposes its tiles and big size cut slabs are also used in flooring of all kinds of buildings i.e. houses for accommodation purposes, mosques, commercial buildings, hotels etc. However, refined and high quality marble is extensively used in handicraft and Kitchen tiling and making of table tops by the furniture industry, whereas, onyx is largely used for the manufacturing of handicrafts mainly for export purposes due to its premium quality and expansiveness. Multipurpose use of marble and onyx has lead to the development of various industries including furniture, construction and handicraft etc. For the purpose of this pre-feasibility we have confined ourselves to the handicraft industry where both marble and onyx are used for the manufacturing of different articles of decoration i.e. vases, clocks, table lamps, ashtray, chessboard, candle stands, telephone set etc. For Marble and Onyx Products Manufacturing, stone is obtained by exploding in mountains, then bring them into factories and cut them into various sizes, here after converted into different sizes and shapes, rubbing and polishing is applied in the end to bring shining and smoothness to the handicraft. For this purpose various machines are use i.e. lathe machine, grinders, polishers etc. MARKET SCENARIO: Global demand for marble and onyx products largely depend on the tourism industry around the world so as the local industry which is export oriented due to low profit margins on such products in the local market. Based on our discussions with the existing players who are exporting such items, Russia is the new emerging market and growing very fast where some cults of catholic Christianity consider onyx a sacred stone. Therefore, Russia may be a permanent market which has opened to international tourists after the fall of USSR during 80s. Seasonal demand of Marble and Onyx products largely depend on religious and cultural occasions round the world. Its demand increases particularly during New Years beginning, on religious occasions i.e. Christmas, Valentines Day, during sports events i.e. Football and Cricket World Cups etc.
