Thassos, from Greece, is one of the whitest and most consistent marble available.
A pure white, fine grained crystalline marble, it has minimal mineral impurities meaning it is without veins or other visual characteristics. The high dolomite content (~90%) is responsible for its brilliant whiteness.
Its semi-translucent nature enables it to be illuminated by back-lighting when used in small thicknesses.
It is highly durable and has an extremely long in-service life in both external and internal applications. It can also be refinished to a pristine condition.
Frost and weather resistant, it has a very low porosity and absorption rate.
A very hard, dense stone, it will accept a highly polished finish. It is also available in a range of other finishes.
