Porphyry with natural surface.

Description of the stone: Porphyry stone is a natural volcanic effusive stone consisting of large-grained crystals such as feldspar or quartz dispersed in a fine-grained groundmass. In nature there are porphyry deposits with stratified porphyry and deposits formed by blocks.
Stratified quarries are formed by vertical clefts due to special conditions of its creation millions of years ago. In this type of deposits, the cooling of the magma was very fast and then emphasized by subsequent tectonic movements that conditioned both the colour and the natural splitting in slabs. This geological feature allows to obtain products with naturally smooth surfaces without particular treatments of the surface (porphyry with natural surface). To obtain the final products, sides are split or sawn. Infiltration of different oxides between layers given to porphyry a natural mix coloration that includes red, brown, grey, violet, pink, yellow, gold and rust. Porphyry with natural surface has therefore a mix colour and, on request, it is possible to select the tone mix grey or mix red.
