MARBLE

Marble (lat. marmor, from the greek: marmaros - a shiny stone, a mass of rock),crystalline rock, formed as a result of recrystallization of limestone or dolomite. In construction practice marble is called a metamorphic rocks of medium hardness, taking polished, these include: marble, marbled limestone, dense dolomite, carbonate breccias and carbonate conglomerates.

GRANITE

Granite (from Lat. Granum - grain) is very tight (2.6-2.7 t/m3) and durable natural stone (its compression strength is 90-250 MPa, which is twice more than that of marble). Most durable are fine-grained kinds of natural stone with a grain size of 2 mm, the least durable are stones with grains larger than 10 mm. Natural stone is resistant to chemical pollution and frost. …

TRAVERTINE

Travertine is an intermediate form of stone between limestone and marble. If the limestone lays under a great pressure for a considerable time (millenia) it turns into travertine. If travertine, in its turn, lays under great pressure for millennia, it turns into marble. Travertine is a precipitate of calcium salts formed on the bottom of ponds, near the sources upper edge. …

SANDSTONE

Sandstone is finely porous permeable kind of natural stone. It consists mainly of quartz particles with the addition of other minerals (silica, carbonate). Very often the sandstone contains iron ore which gives it an attractive color. A color of natural stone (depending on minefield) may vary from almost white to red, brown, gray and even blue-green. Sandstone is in many …

SLATE

Slate is laminated fine-grained natural stone formed from clay, sedimentary rocks, and sometimes quartz. Slate slabs have natural slightly rough surface, rarely grinded or polished ( usually only black, green and gray slates are polished. Slates  can be of various colors from clean green (Verde), beige (Biege), reddish (Rosso) or black (Black) to shimmering …

STONE BLOCKS

Stone block is the quarries primary product intended for further processing (cut to slabs, products).

Slabs are the plates receive by cutting blocks of 10 to 30 mm thick  for some materials permissible thickness of 40 mm. Slab sizes are not regulated and are dependent on the blocks sizes.

ONYX

Onyx is a natural mineral, a variation of the layered agate. Its natural relatives by chemical composition are alabaster, travertine and pearls. "Onyx" in Greek means "nail" .  Perhaps because of the fact that the structural interlaminar mineral was similar to the layering of the human platelet-nail. The ancient Arabs called it jazz, the ancient Jews it …

Tiles is a finished product with sizes: length from 150 to 1500 mm, width from 150 to 1200 mm, thickness from 10 to 30 mm, designed for installing on work surface. Mosaics are patterned tiles with different colors, surface treatments, materials, glued to a plastic mesh for subsequent adhesion to the surface. Paving stone – Paving stone is a material used for laying garden paths, access platforms, lanes and large areas. Paving stone kinds are  heat-treated, chopped, sawn, chipped.

surface

Natural stone surface finishing:

Polished - high gloss, with a clear reflection of objects, without traces of previous machining processing

Honed (matt) - free from previous processing traces, with full stone texture identifying

Ground - uniformly rough with traces of processing obtained only by grinding, with roughness of relief up to 0.5 mm
