Michelangelo’s David and many other famous statues are carved from what glossy, relatively soft rock?
Marble’s crystalline, sparkly appearance and the fact it can be polished have made it a favorite material for sculpture since ancient times. It is a metamorphic rock that starts life as limestone or dolomite but changes under heat and pressure. Other types of metamorphic rock include slate and gneiss.
The correct answer is Marble.
