Our selection of high-quality materials

Marble

Marble is a rock formed by the metamorphosis of sedimentary carbonate rocks, such as limestone or dolomite. Over time the original rocks go through a process of recrystallisation and create the peculiar marble rock. The presence of other minerals before the metamorphosis is what causes the peculiar veining and colour spectrum of marble as we know it.

Quartz

Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals on Earth. It comes in a wide variety of shapes and colours and it is believed to be the most variable of all minerals. Some of these varieties are semi-precious gemstones. Examples are Amethyst, Onyx, Tiger’s eye. It is a durable and heavy material, often used for interior and exterior applications.

Granite

Granite is one of the most popular and widely used rocks. Its name comes from the latin word for “grain” which refers to its peculiar grainy appearance. It is composed mainly of quartz and feldspar, though it can contain other minerals. The crystals in granite are clearly visible due to the slow cooling rate of the magma, when the rock was being formed.
Granite rock can be white, grey or pink depending on their mineral composition. Its is a hard stone with low porosity which makes it perfect for kitchens as it is heat and stain resistant and very difficulty to scratch.

Limestone

Limestone is a sedimentary rock, composed mainly of skeletal fragments of organisms like coral or molluscs. The colours of limestone rocks can vary according to the quantity of calcite contained in the stone, of impurities and fossils. The colour palette goes from white to yellow and in some cases grey and black. Limestone is widely used in architecture for building, decorating and also as a very popular alternative to wood or resilient floors.
