characteristics and textures. With that being said, before marble is marble, marble is limestone which explains why it is coarse unless polished. Marble can be found all over the world because it is such a beautiful rock and many people want to use it in their homes. I found out not too long ago that family members of Bin Laden recently bought a quarry that contains a lot of the worlds marble and is the same quarry that Michelangelo used to craft David statue and the builders of London's Marble Arch used. I remember seeing all different types of rocks over there in Afghanistan, if it was from simply being out on patrol as an infantryman or if I was in some bazaar and they were on sale at some stand. I never thought to save some of those unique things that I saw over there, although I might have some pictures of different artifacts like rocks that I saw. Also, the information you gave about Bin Laden’s family members is really cool, people are still getting there marble from the same place that it was retrieved from hundreds of years ago! Thanks for the post!

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
