Quarried at Dionyssovouni, Dionyssos, Attica, it has the same chemical composition and texture as Pentelicon marble, of Parthenon fame.  Its predominantly white colouration features light grey or green veins, with localised off-white parts. It presents ashy alternations (of various shades) and white/semi-white bands.

Its main feature, in addition to its high quality, is its unique durability in time and use.

Petrographic analysis: Calcitic marble
Mineral composition: Main minerals: calcite (approx. 98%), dolomite (1%)

Applications: Off-white Kokkinara Dionyssos Marble is suitable for any type of application, both in building constructions as well as in decoration. 

It is ideal for indoor flooring and vertical surfaces such as bathroom walls. Its colour and banding give a special character to small spaces, while it is an excellent decoration element, when combined with marble of other colours.
