Natural stone surfaces


Marble is a fine-grained to very course-grained metamorphic rock. Marble is often pure white, and if you can see crystals it may look sugary. Marble can be streaked (or marbled) with grey, green, brown or red. It's quite soft and will not scratch glass. Marble is formed from the metamorphism of limestone.


Quartz has the same physical-mechanical features as granite. It has high-range hardness, and is offer used in similar external or internal applications to granite depending on the particular type.

Our range of quartz includes:

  • Arenastone
  • Silestone
  • Caesarstone


Granite is a coarse-grained intrusive igneous rock. It contains large interlocking crystals which are randomly orientated. It contains a number of minerals, mostly feldspars, which are pale grey or pinkish, and quartz which is white or grey. It also contains small black specs of mafic (dark coloured) minerals.

Granite is formed deep in the Earth's crust from large masses of cooling magma that never made it to the surface. Slow cooling produces the large crystals.
