OUR "GREEK WHITES" COLLECTION
THE “GREEK WHITES” The classic whites are now part of the “Greek Whites” collection of classic Greek marble at Marble Emporium, in Northbrook, Illinois.
Thassos Pure White, the whitest marble of the world, has served distinguished architectural taste in America for many decades now. A favorite of Chicago’s interior designers who seek the ultimate in whiteness, Thassos Pure White is only available in relatively smaller sizes, suitable for bathroom applications, fireplaces, and furniture designs.
Naxos Crystal White is the first marble used by ancient Greeks for their temples, back in the 7thc. BC. Naxos Crystal White is a durable, calcitic crystalline, in continuous usage for the last 2700 years. It is of immaculate character and mineral-crystal like crystalline structure. Naxos has the strength and low porosity that makes it suitable for the toughest applications.
Pentelic or Pentelico White is the legendary marble of the Parthenon and the Athenian Acropolis, the marble renown for its use in the classic Attic statuary of Athens. Despite its beauty, the Pentelic is a tough marble, highly resistant to scratching and low liquid absorption that make it a prime candidate as an improved yet less expensive alternative to Calacata and Statuario.
