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 backround 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.
