What is mean by calcareous ?

Karan said: (Aug 17, 2014)  
Calcareous are the sedimentary rocks, partly composed of calcium carbonate (i.e. containing lime or being chalky).

Joes said: (Apr 13, 2015)  
Is not marble a non foliated metamorphic rock.

Shibu said: (Aug 26, 2015)  
Marble is a metamorphic rock.

Srinivas said: (Oct 13, 2015)  
Generally calcareous rocks are chemically classified.

Tony said: (Nov 6, 2015)  
I think marble is a metamorphic rock.

Akash said: (Dec 20, 2015)  
Geologically marble is metamorphic but chemically marble is calcareous rocks.

Divakar said: (Apr 29, 2016)  
Marble is a metamorphic rock.

Anil said: (Jun 19, 2016)  
Yes, the marble is a metamorphic rock.

Shivraj said: (Aug 1, 2016)  
Marble is a metamorphic rock.

Raja said: (Aug 11, 2016)  
The question is asked by classification vise so, the answer is correct.

Mangesh said: (Aug 17, 2016)  
Marble is metamorphic rock.

But chemically a calcareous rock.

Amit Ami Sharma said: (Aug 28, 2016)  
Geologically marble is metamorphic rocks.

Chemically marble is calcaerous having CaCO3 or limes as their major constituent.

Mahesh Shirurkar said: (Sep 8, 2016)  
Marble is a metamorphic rock.

Ajmal Khan said: (Sep 15, 2016)  
Chemically marble is a calcareous rock. And geologically marble is metamorphic rock. Physically marble is unstratified rock.

Baloch said: (Oct 27, 2016)  
Marble is geologically Metamorphic Rock (made from metamorphic action of sedimentary limestone).

Chemically marble is calcareous rock.

Amit said: (Dec 11, 2016)  
Geological classifications.

chemically, Marble is calcareous.

Geologically it is metamorphic which converts into lime stone CaO.

Sakthishree said: (Sep 3, 2017)  
Marble is metamorphic rock.

Prem Meena said: (Oct 4, 2017)  
Yes, marble is metamorphic rock. But chemically classification so it's calcareous.

Bakesh said: (Feb 15, 2018)  
Marble is metamorphic rock. But over question wise chemically classification it's calcareous.

Anam Siddique said: (Aug 18, 2018)  
Marble is a metamorphic rock but according to question it is a calcareous rock.

Kishan Datta said: (Oct 5, 2018)  
Rock have three type classification:

1) physical.
2) chemical.
3) as per strata.

Marble is metamorphic as per physical classification.
Marble is calcareous as per chemical classifica tion.
Marble is foliated as per Stratawise classification.

Shahnoor said: (Nov 19, 2018)  
It is Metamorphic rock.

Sudesh said: (May 2, 2019)  
Its Chemically Classification, So, Calcareous.

Dnyaneshwar said: (Aug 20, 2019)  
Marble is a metamorphic rock.

Ali said: (Jun 4, 2020)  
Chemically, marble is a metamorphic rock.

Ram said: (Jun 14, 2020)  
Marbel is a metamorphic rock.

Deepthi said: (Oct 2, 2020)  
Metamorphic rock is the right answer.

Aman Gupta said: (Nov 30, 2020)  
Metamorphic rock = quartzide, gnieses, marble, shale.

Tarofder Al Mamun said: (Dec 7, 2020)  
Marble firstly calcareous rock then metamorphic rock. Limestone with metamorphic action makes marble.

Vineet Joshi said: (Feb 1, 2021)  
Metamorphic is the right answer.

Beema said: (Jul 17, 2021)  
Calcarious metamorphic rock - marble.

Sid said: (Sep 9, 2021)  
It should be metamorphic.

Hardik Diya said: (Jan 25, 2022)  
Rocks have 3 types of classifications.

1. Geological- igneous, sedimentary, metamorphic.
2. Physical- stratified, unstratified,
3. Chemical- calcareous, silicious, Argillaceous.
