Stone Info

MARBLE: Marble is a calcareous rock with a mid-range in its hardness, formed usually by fine grain crystals. This composition contributes to a mirror like polish finish, which is exceptional in stone. It is suitable for internal use. The incorporation of marble will turn any room into a graceful and attractive living space.

GRANITE: Granite is an igneous rock of volcanic origin and has the highest range of hardness. It is very resistant to high wear and tear, with superior abrasion resistance and compressive strength. It is available in a wide range of colors. Historically it used to be available only in a homogeneous grain, now it is available in veined and patterned varieties. Granite is an excellent material for internal and external building use because of its hardness and resistance to all types of weather.

TRAVERTINE: Travertine is a porous calcareous rock. Travertine may vary in color from white to silver-grey, to yellow, red, and dark brown. It is easy to work with. The surface is suitable for a honed, polished or antiques finish, which can compliment any room. It is mainly used for internal applications; however it can also be used externally in warm climates.

ONYX: Onyx is a calcareous material with a very fine, tight grain and many veins running concentrically to one another. This translucent stone is synonymous with luxury living. It takes a high polish, which contributes to its beauty.

LIMESTONE: When the word -stone- is used in the context of slab dimensional stone, it usually refers to limestone, slate and other sedimentary rock. They are rarely polished. They are suitable for internal and external use.

QUARTZITE: Quartzite has the same physical and mechanical features as granite. It has high-range hardness and is often used in similar external applications as granite. Granite and quartzite have become the preferred stone for kitchens and hallway decor this past decade, and are also becoming a popular choice for flooring tiles. It is suitable for external applications as well.
