Porphyry is a natural stone whose beauty lies in its myriad shades of colour. The area where it is quarried, located between South Tyrol and Trentino, is known as the area’s “porphyry platform”.
Vague and unique in their variations, the distinctive warm earthy colours make Porphyry a versatile choice for all needs and stylistic requirements. With its natural physical qualities, porphyry is a natural stone that has been used since time immemorial as an artistic element and to create flooring and cladding for prestigious spaces. In addition to feldspar and chlorotised biotite, quartz crystals are what produce the characteristic shine and make this local rock so desirable and precious.
