Keywords: Marble, South Aceh, Gunung Kerambil, XRD


Gunung Kerambil is an area in South Aceh that well known for its marble deposits. The characteristic of marble from Gunung Kerambil is normally white. This study aims to determine the mineral characteristics of Marble Stone from Gunung Kerambil, South Aceh. Marbles was characterized by using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD). Marbles was characterized by using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD). The results of X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis indicated that the sample of marble taken from Gunung Kerambil has a dominant phase of Calsite (CaCO3). Another minor phase identified in the sample was Quartz (SiO2).
