Thassos white Sculpture
White marble has been prized for its use in sculptures since classical times. This preference has to do with its softness, relative isotropy and homogeneity, and a relative resistance to shattering. Also, the low index of refraction of calcite allows light to penetrate several millimeters into the stone before being scattered out, resulting in the characteristic waxy look which gives "life" to marble sculptures of the human body.
Construction marble is a stone which is composed of calcite, dolomite or serpentine which is capable of taking a polish. More generally in construction, specifically the dimension stone trade, the term "marble" is used for any crystalline calcitic rock (and some non-calcitic rocks) useful as building stone. For example, Tennessee marble is really a dense granular fossiliferous gray to pink to maroon Ordovician limestone that geologists call the Holston Formation.
Colorless or light-colored marbles are a very pure source of calcium carbonate, which is used in a wide variety of industries. Finely ground marble or calcium carbonate powder is a component in paper, and in consumer products such as toothpaste, plastics, and paints. Ground calcium carbonate can be made from limestone, chalk, and marble; about three-quarters of the ground calcium carbonate worldwide is made from marble. Ground calcium carbonate is used as a coating pigment for paper because of its high brightness and as a paper filler because it strengthens the sheet and imparts high brightness. Ground calcium carbonate is used in consumer products such as a food additive, in toothpaste, and as an inert filler in pills. It is used in plastics because it imparts stiffness, impact strength, dimensional stability, and thermal conductivity. It is used in paints because it is a good filler and extender, has high brightness, and is weather resistant. However, the growth in demand for ground calcium carbonate in the last decade has mostly been for a coating pigment in paper.
Calcium carbonate can also be reduced under high heat to calcium oxide (also known as "lime"), which has many applications including being a primary component of many forms of cement.

Thassos white marble Thin panels
For wall facing special wall thin panels are often used, their thickness is about 6-10 mm. Thickness of the stone plate itself (without backing) is 5-8 mm. Production of thin panels is a complicated technological process which consists of several stages. First, backing of the future panel is stuck on big slabs (slabs are stone blocks brought from the quarry). After that the stone is sawn. Thus, a stone plate several milimeters thick is glued with backing. Afterwards the panel is finished — polished and ground.
We can supply 8mm~9 mm thickness thin panels in size 1200 mm x 2400 mmm , which is good for countertops and tub surround.

Cleaning and Caring for Marble Floors, Walls or Countertops
Marble is one of the most beautiful materials used today to make countertops, tabletops, fireplace mantles and floors. With a wide variety of colors, sizes and shapes of marble tile available it is possible to match any decor and add classic, timeless beauty to any room in your home.
Marble is used more frequently in bathrooms than kitchens and is often used on the walls, floors, vanities or shelves. The first and most important step in caring for your marble is to be sure that it is sealed with a high quality sealer specifically designed for marble. This will help to prevent some stains and will make cleaning your marble a bit easier and more effective.
Marble can be scratched by grit so it is important not to use an abrasive cleaner when cleaning your granite. Instead, try using liquid dish soap and warm water. Rinse the soapy water and then dry the marble with a soft towel. Acidic cleaners are a definite no-no with marble since they can eat into the marble and cause damage. This includes even mild acids like vinegar or lemon juice, both of which can cause permanent damage to your marble.
If you have tougher stains on your marble that cannot be removed with dish soap and water, you can try using a marble polishing powder. These powders are available at most hardware and home improvement stores and come with complete instructions on how to use them to clean your marble.
If you have a particularly tough stain that won't come out with the soapy water or the polishing powder, your best bet would probably be to call a professional marble cleaner or restorer to tackle the job for you rather than risk further damaging your marble by trying something on your own
The best way to care for your marble is by using precautions to prevent stains and scratching before they happen. Because marble is porous and will absorb moisture, always be sure to immediately wipe up any spills. Use a high quality marble sealer, and reseal as needed to be sure that your marble remains protected and beautiful.
Marble is higher maintenance than many other natural stones, however, it has a beauty, elegance and class that can make the extra maintenance seem very worthwhile.
