World-renowned architects and designers have specified Olympian White Danby on floors, walls, kitchen countertops, bathroom vanity tops, reception desks, pavers, and even on the inside of a pool.

The soft white background with very little movement makes this marble a great choice for almost any project.

The varieties of this stone are all extracted from the largest underground marble quarry in the world in Dorset Mountain, Vermont. For over 100 years, several types of marble with different shades and structures have been quarried there. From the entrance, the quarry twists and turns 1,5 miles deep. In 2002, the company added a full-scale production facility, also underground, equipped with 2 Gang Saws, a Monowire to cut thick slabs and cubic pieces, a resin line, a fully automated Polishing Line, and a top of the line Prussiani cut to size machine.

Up to 4,000 square feet of slabs per day can be produced.
