Description

Volakas White Marble in Florida

The finest natural stone Volakas White, from which the stone takes its name, is a remote village on the eastern flanks of the Falakron mountains in the Drama area of North Greece, close to the borders with Bulgaria. Today the name Volakas has become almost generic for a whole range of white and semi-white types of marble which are extracted from these mountains.

The popularity of this range of Volakas marble continues to grow at an astonishing rate and it is exported in large quantities to all parts of the world. The white background with light grey veining corresponds with nearly everyone’s perception of the most beautiful marble and it is specified by architects for many of the world’s most important buildings.

White Volakas Marble has been prized for its use in sculptures since classical times. This preference has to do with its softness, relative isotropy and homogeneity, and relative resistance to shattering. Also, the low index of refraction of calcite allows light to penetrate several millimeters into the stone before being scattered out, resulting in the characteristic waxy look that gives “life” to marble sculptures of the human body.
