The marble and granite samples on the next few pages have been chosen from a vast range of available material for their physical properties and aesthetic beauty. All the materials we use are natural and have taken millions of years to form, every piece is unique and will add individuality to its surroundings.
Granite is an igneous rock formed from cooling magma and comes in a huge variety of colours. It is far harder than marble, and has a glassy finish when polished. It is easily maintained and is scratch resistant, making it very hygienic and a popular choice for kitchen worktops.
Marble is a metamorphic rock formed by the compression and heating of sediment. It is not as hard as granite and doesn't take such a strong polish. Its softer looks and less robust properties usually make it the better choice for bathrooms.
Quartz Stones are man made using 94% Quartz and 6% resin.
Their physical properties are similar to granite.
Although granite has a higher tolerance to heat and is more scratch resistant Quartzsones are less porus than some granites and
are very uniform in colour and structure.
