  Marble sculpture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Marble is a metamorphic rock resulting from the metamorphism of limestone, composed mostly of calcite (a crystalline form of calcium carbonate, CaCO3).
Marble also has the advantage that when first quarried it is relatively soft and easy to work, refine, and polish.
Preference to the cheaper and less translucent limestone is based largely on the fineness of marble's grain, which enables the sculptor to render minute detail in a manner not always possible with limestone; it is also more weather resistant.

Rossellino's contract was terminated soon thereafter, and the block of marble originally from a quarry in Carrara, a town in the Apuan Alps in northern Italy, remained neglected for twenty-five years, all the while exposed to the elements in the yard of the cathedral workshop.
The samples obtained from that incident allowed scientists to determine that the marble used by Michelangelo was obtained from the Fantiscritti quarries in Miseglia, the central of three small valleys in Carrara.
A replica of the statue was offered as a gift by the municipality of Florence to the municipality of Jerusalem to mark the 3,000th anniversary of David's conquest of the city.

 Cleere, C. May 1997
As the statue was positioned in a public area it was decided that work should be carried out only at times of low traffic, and that no conservation treatments, equipment, or materials that could pose a threat to public safety could be left on the statue when the conservator was not present.
It was hoped that screening the statue would have two effects; firstly, it would stop members of the public interfering with the statue during the conservation treatment, and secondly, on unveiling, the finished statue would show a dramatic change rather than a gradual improvement.
As the statue is on open display and accessible to the public, it was felt that the figure was still vulnerable to the same destructive elements that had caused its previous deterioration -- i.e.
