Volakas Marble from Greece



“Don’t try to steer the river”

Named after the village on the outskirts of the mountain Falakro in Northern Greece, Volakas River is one of the region’s most well-known dolomite marble at an altitude of 830 meters thanks to the homonymous fossiliferous locality of Volakas.
“Volakas River” is a fine-grained stone accented with stripes of subtle taupe grey and ribbons of pale brownishveins that flow through an alabaster white background. Its classic predominant white setting gives the stone a natural intricacy and an eye – catching versatility.
Undoubtedly, it is a “must-prescribe” for bookmatched residential as well as commercial projects.When unsealed, this natural artistic stone is highly susceptible to staining and etching; the characteristic swirls that run diagonally across the entire slab with cloudy or wavy patterns, grayish calcite lines and round – shaped calcite crystalhave large-scale movement that give a different aspect of decoration when patterns are matched at the seams.
It is widely used for wall facade, countertops, sinks etc.
It can also be polished, honed, brushed or sandblasted.
