Sivec is the trademark of a white dolomitic marble extracted from the quarries near the town of Prilep in Macedonia. The fine grain makes it ideal for bothsculpture and architectural applications. The extraction of Sivec marble can be dated back in 500BC and earlier.
Through the centuries Sivec was used for many building and reconstruction sites throughout the world.
There is a long term concession for the operation of the quarries. The marble bearing deposits in the area are widely known and are among the largest in the world. The whiteness of the marble, its homogenous form and the micro-granular structure generate a high demand for SIvec marble in the international market.
White Sivec or Bianco Sivec is the commercial name for this fine white dolomitic marble.
Nowdays Sivec has been selected to give the characteristic, exclusive white appearance in many large well known projects, inlcuding hotels, palaces and many commercial buildings.
