Italian Porphyry types…


There are two main types of Italian Porphyry stone :


–  Dimension stone cut by saw from the quarry in large blocks, which are then finished in a factory into sawn slabs, tiles, kitchen worktop etc.

–  Split stone where the stone is split and guillotined entirely within the quarry, mostly for exterior landscape applications.
