White Georgia - Marble
A timeless classic that has established itself among many generations past and present, this white marble bearing the name of its home in the hills of Georgia is of the greatest purity and quality. Sparkling calcite crystals create dazzling reflections, while very faint and subtle veins of diffused grey cut across the surface, making it a strong choice for refined tastes.
