The chemistry, crystal structure, and physical properties of the Ilimanu marble were tested. Overall, the Ilimanu marble samples tested are indicated as high grade marble, in the order of 98-99% calcite. Other notable minerals observed to be present in the samples tested are epidote, amphibole, diopside, opaques, talc, lithoclast and traces of magnetite and pyrite
The following basic physical properties tests were carried out with exceptional results compared with the ASTM specification for marble C503-15 and with results from a typical Carrara white marble.
– Water Absorption / Bulk Specific Gravity
– Flexural Strength
– Modulus of Rupture
– Flexural Modulus of Elasticity
– Unconfined Compressive Strength
– Abrasion Resistance
