Pirgon Marble Range & Water

Water is indispensable to the creation of marble deposits, (a key external geological factor that shapes rocks), as well as in the process of marble cutting and forming. Therefore is a dominant element concerning the nomenclature chosen for the Pirgon Selection. It contributes to the humidity rate and the vapor produced during cutting. It is also a key component of clouds whose patterns and colors resemble some types of marble. It also connects Ebru, a painting technique on water using special pigments and paper, which creates a marbling effect similar to the Arabescato pattern.

Pirgon is a dolomitic marble, extracted at a specific region of Northern Greece. This material crystallizes in triangular prisms with a compact, granular, color form or stalactite texture, and a vitreous to pearly luster. It is characterized by clarity, purity and beautiful motifs.
