marble.

Marble was a hardstone widely used in the Realms as a building material.[4][5][6] Marble was sometimes called calcite because that was its primary ingredient.[4][6]

Description[edit | edit source]

Marble was highly prized in construction because of its strength, weight, and beauty. It came in many colors, including black, gray, pink, and white, and polished to a reflective smooth finish. This material was extremely heavy but was easy to quarry to exact specifications.[4][5][6] A typical price was 3 gp per pound (0.45 kg).[1][2][3]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The lesser deity Vhaeraun was known to occasionally send black marble to show his favour or disfavour to his followers.[7][8]

Uses[edit | edit source]

The Great Library of Mezro in Chult had a facade of rose marble.[9]

Powers[edit | edit source]

No magical use for marble has been found.[5]
