This is one of the largest deposits of marble in Russia. The difference of this marble from other deposits is high decorativeness, uniformity, density, whiteness and "softness" of the stone. This is an ideal marble for sculptures, belongs to the category of statuary high-quality marble, which, with a tile width of 3 cm, is translucent in the sun and is considered to be the highest grade marble.
