Marble is a metamorphic rock formed when limestone is exposed to high temperatures and pressures. The variety of colors exhibited by marble are a consequence of minor amounts of impurities being incorporated with the calcite during metamorphism. White marble can be dolomite or calcite and have a range from pure white to semi white, with strong veins’ contradictions.
White marble is timeless. Its uniqueness places it among the most expensive natural stones, high in the preferences of architects and interior designers. This material has an endless range in veins and shades making it ideal for flooring, wall cladding, stairs, pool tiles and other applications for interior and outdoor spaces. Once applied white marble gives a sense of luxury and luminosity.
White marble is quarried in many countries around the world. Greece is indeed where the first marble quarries were found in the Bronze Age, on many Aegean islands, the main sources being Thasos, Naxos, Keros, Paros and Ios. Greece is the oldest and most known country for its white and semi white marble production, from the ancient architectural wonders, used until today in many applications around the world.
Following Greece, Italy has a strong background in marble quarrying and processing while today the country is famous for its expensive white marble collection.
Some of the most famous Greek white marbles are Pentelikon which was used to build the Acropolis, Dionyssos marble, Thassos White used in Mecca, as well as Kavalas, known for its durability, Naxos for its crystals, Volakas for its light brown and grey veins and many more. Italy on the other hand has a wide and beautiful range in white Calacatta and Statuario, with dark veins creating a unique contrast, ideal for decorations and flooring applications.
