It is a fine grained stone with ribbons of grayish and brownish veins which flow through an alabaster white background. The streaks run diagonally across the entire slab, permeating the surface with cloudy or wavy patterns. Grayish or red calcite lines and round-shaped calcite crystals may appear, too, in some slabs.
Much like the Carrara, the Volakas White is a timeless piece of beauty which exudes elegance and class in any installation. Being a natural product, it changes, ages, and wears over time. When unsealed, it is highly susceptible to staining and etching. Hence, it requires careful upkeep to maintain the look as it did the day you had it installed.
If you are the type of person who (1.) lives more casually and (2.) loves the character and beauty that a stone develops over continued use, Volakas White may just be the perfect countertop material for your kitchen.
