Potters Grave

James and Lily Potter's headstone.

Marble is a non-foliated metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Marble is commonly used for sculpture and as a building material.[1]

Gringotts Wizarding Bank's main hall in London was made of marble[2] as well as stairs leading to bank's interior,[3] though passageways to vaults were carved out of stone.[2]

"The stone walls were lit with flaming torches like the ones at Gringotts, the ceiling was too high to make out, and a magnificent marble staircase facing them led to the upper floors."
