    Marble, wood, metal... however we use these materials in our homes, they have almost certainly been moved by heavy machinery and then transported in a truck at one point or another. Diesel really is the lifeblood of urban life--at least until we find a better alternative.

    I found the mining process in this video quite astonishing. So much effort to extract and move the massive blocks of marble, and the versatility of wheel loaders is equally impressive considering they can use different attachments depending on what they need to do:



    Of course, a shout-out to the patient and skilled operators too!

    Like I say, don’t take moving marble for granite.

    It looks like marble can be quite difficult to mine and extract which is why we want to be careful to never lose the marble(s) we have.
