The Greek marble Thassos: Dimensions & thickness of tiles, types of marble slabs, shapes & mosaic patterns of the whitest natural stone in the world
Thassos marble is the whitest marble in the world and is certainly one of the most sought-after materials in the natural stone market. It is famous for its glistening appearance and unique, pure white structure. Due to its special composition and glowing appearance, it has rightly won worldwide recognition. It is no coincidence that the demand for this natural material has always remained at extremely high levels!
It is a suitable material for all architectural and decorative designs. Aside from its application on floors, walls, counters and other surfaces, the white natural stone of Thassos adds a piece of luxurious and elegant appearance in many decorative objects. Clearly, the choice of this specific natural stone for the construction of prestigious projects, luxury homes, commercial buildings and iconic monuments, is not accidental.
The mining site & technical characteristics of Thassos white marble
On Thassos, a small island in the North of the Aegean Sea, we find some of the most famous white marble stone quarries in the world. The rich history of Thassos marble dates back to ancient times, while its mining continues to this day. Thassos white marble has been used to create famous sculptures and buildings, as its special technical characteristics and resistance to weather conditions justify its timelessness and stability over the years.
Thassos white marble has incredible durability, being slightly harder than limestone and softer than granite. It is also very resistant to water and weather conditions, which is why it is ideal for outdoor applications. An additional factor that enhances the strength of the natural stone is its high density combined with low porosity. At the same time, its resistance to heat makes Thassos white natural stone suitable for applications such as for fireplaces and kitchen countertops. In every case, waterproofing (sealing) of the material is recommended to preserve and keep the marble unchanged over time.

The types of Thassos white marble tiles and slabs
Thassos white marble is available in blocks, slabs, tiles and mosaics, allowing flexibility of the design and application in different architectural projects.
The most well-known type of Thassos white marble is Thassos Snow White. Thassos Snow White marble is also the only type that we will find in the tile category. On the other hand, in the product category of slabs, apart from Thassos Snow White, we have Thassos marble in the following types: Thassos Eco, Thassos Golden Radix, Thassos Rosso and Thassos Vein Cut.
Let’s take a more detailed look at some basic information about each product type.
Thassos Snow White:
It is the whitest marble in the world! It is a bright, fine-grained marble with a crystalline color, very high solar reflectance and a unique, refined character. It exudes a sense of luxury wherever it is placed, as it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor spaces.
This is a variant of Thassos, which can be easily applied to both residential and commercial projects. The white background mixed with beige tones maintains harmony and creates a beautiful pattern, able to be combined with other materials.
Thassos Golden Radix:
It is another Thassos variant and is currently rare. Its golden veins resemble tree roots and when its slabs are placed using the Book-match technique, they create a unique work of art.
This particular variant of Thassos has a subtle presence of red in its veins. The white color remains equally bright and generates high solar reflection. The slabs of this fine marble feature prominently in the compositions of designers and decorators and offer the possibility to create special decorative surfaces and exceptional book-match applications.
Thassos Vein Cut:
It is another variant of Thassos marble which, thanks to its very light-colored veins, creates an unparalleled aesthetic and functional result. The reflections of the light remain interesting here too, while the sense of purity that the white light gives, is highly impressive.

The dimensions of Thassos marble tiles and slabs
The different dimensions of Thassos tiles offer many interesting options wherever they are placed. They start from a smaller size, (3X6″, 3X9″), to larger ones, (4X12″ 6X12″), in still larger ones (12X12″, 12X24″, 24X24”) and finally in even bigger ones (24X48″, 36X36’’). It is worth mentioning that our facilities provide the possibility to adapt the tiles to any dimension needed, starting from 1X1 and up to any dimension you have dreamed of for your project.
In all tile dimensions, the thickness can be either 1 or 2 cm, with the edges being either flat edge or half-bevel.
In the case of the dimensions of the Thassos slabs, it can be seen that they may differ depending on the mining method and the different blocks. What is certain, however, is that the offered blocks can meet the needs of any large surface and their slabs can be precisely adapted to any architectural, design and decorative project.
