Kris, our team member from
Bulgaria, visited a marble quarry and a marble plant.
The videos use Windows Media Player and will take a minute to
load with the page. Click on the arrow at the bottom of
the player and the video will start. Some computers need
to have the arrow clicked twice and some connections are slower
than others. Be patient. The videos are worth it!
The videos can also be downloaded to your computer by right
clicking on the link underneath the player and then highlighting
"Save link target as".
Let's visit the Marble Plant with Kris!
When I began this project, I
didn't know anything about mines or mining. I didn't know
what I could do to help the team with the project but I finally
decided to make a trip video. During our spring holiday,
my father, mother, baby brother and I went to Berkovitsa where
there was a quarry and a marble plant.
quarry was interesting. There were a lot of marble blocks
in many colors like gray, white, and pink. In my opinion,
the pink marble is the most beautiful. It looks as if it is
colored artificially but itís not. Nature has created it so
shiny and lovely.
