This is really a type of limestone rather than a true marble.

It is named after the Bristol area where it was first discovered in 1754. Its patterns, which look like trees and hedges, were made by algae and worm-like creatures living on the mud flats where it formed some 200 million years ago and give it the alternative name of

‘landscape marble’.
