Granite

Granite is a common type of felsic intrusive igneous rock that is granular and Phaneritic in texture. It is formed by Earth's magma, which contains a high concentration of silica and alkali metal oxides and cools and solidifies beneath. Depending on their mineralogy, they can predominantly be White, Grey, or Pink in colour. Granite is always massive, hard, and rough, these properties have made it a widespread construction stone throughout human history. Granite is a symbol of antiquity. Granite has an average density of 2.65 and 2.75 g/cm. Granite is an extremely tough rock that weathers slowly to generate thin soils with many big rocks protruding. The approximate size of Granite is available in 2cm and 3cm.

Marble

Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of the mineral (CaCO3) - recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly, Calcite or dolomite. It is commonly used for sculptures and for construction. The word marble is derived from Marmaron which means a shinining stone in greek. Historically notable varieties: Pentelic, Creole, Etowah, Makrana, Murphy, Nero Marquina, Parian, Carrara, Ruskeala, Ruschita, Bianco Sivec, Swedish Green, Vermont, Yule. There are certain exceptions to the rule that marble is not foliated. Marble comes in a variety of hues and has a variety of characteristics, such as the number of veining, etc. Marble is denser than granite. Normally, the Marble slab's maximum size is about 8ft x 5ft with a thickness of 2-3cm.

Quartz

Quartz is a manufactured stone. It is basically a hard crystalline mineral composed of Silicon and Oxygen atoms. It is the most abundant mineral found on the Earth’s surface. The unique properties make it one of the most used natural substances. It is found in all forms of rock. Quartz has much economic importance. Many varieties of gemstones and sandstones are of quartz material used in Jewellery, and Construction. It is widely used in the manufacture of glass, ceramics, and abrasives. The second most abundant mineral in the Earth's crust is quartz. Quartz has a density of 2.65 g/cm. These are manufactured by a combination of 93% of quartz and 7% of polymer resin, to give a consistent colour and finish to the stone.

Porcelain

Porcelain is white, Glass-like, non porous, hard, translucent ceramic that has been burned at high temperatures to create vitreous, or glassy, characteristics like translucency and low porosity. There are two types of porcelain: hard-paste porcelain & soft-paste porcelain. It is a totally impermeable substance with excellent mechanical properties. Usually white or off-white, porcelain comes in both glazed and unglazed varieties. It can be used for tableware, laboratory equipment, decorative objects, and electrical insulators. Modern porcelain tiles are generally produced by a number of recognized international standards and definitions. Porcelain's main components are clays, flint, or feldspar, and silica, all of which have microscopic particle sizes.

Tiles

Tiles is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such as Ceramic, Stone, Metal, Baked Clay or even Glass. It's meaning by origin says, ‘It is Fired, Clay’.Tiles are functional and decorative in usage. It has been used since Roman times. Ceramic/Porcelain, Glass, Quarry, and Stone are the classifications of Tiles. Interior tiles are choices for vanity, kitchen, and bathrooms. They can make floors and walls to absorb moisture. It is a value for beauty and economy. It has slip-resistance, surface abrasion resistance, stain & chemical resistance, water absorption quality, and mechanical strength. Tile comes in a wide range of colours, textures, sizes, and materials. Types of Tiles - Ceramic Tile, Porcelain Tile, Glass Tile, Marble Tile, Granite Tile, and Other Natural Stone Tile.

Quartzite

Quartzite is a hard, non-foliated metamorphic Sandstone. When a quartz-rich sandstone is transformed by heat, pressure, and chemical activity, it transforms into ultra-strong quartzite. Quartzite consists almost entirely of silicon dioxide, SiO2. Quartzite is a decorative stone, used for wall, floor, stair steps, tops, and roof finishing. They can have veining similar to marbles and are almost beautiful crystalline stoned structures. The protolith of quartzite is quartz sandstone. This protolith is a sedimentary rock formed by the cementation of tiny sand grains. Its application for kitchen surfaces is fast expanding. It is tougher and more stain-resistant than granite. Quartzite is a stone that is exceptionally hard and durable, as well as resistant to chemical products, high temperatures, and scratches.

Slate

Slate is a fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock with a dull lustere created by the alteration of shale or mudstone by low-grade regional metamorphism under relatively low temperature and pressure. It is also been sedimented as rock beds. The most prevalent colour of a Slate is grey. They are mined and quarried in different parts of the world predominately in Brazil and Spain to be used as premium construction stones. Slate is available in a variety of finishes, including honed and polished. These slate rocks easily cleave or splits into thin slabs with high tensile strength and endurance. As a result, the crystals are not immediately obvious to the naked eye, despite their fine structure.

Travertine

Travertine is a type of earthly limestone formed from the minerals deposited around the hot springs composed of calcite (calcium carbonate, CaCO3). It's been quarried and used as a premium construction stone. There are three grades of travertine: premium, standard, and commercial. Travertine comes in filled and unfilled forms, filled stones go through a process of filling polyesters to close large pores in factories and unfilled stones are available in more rustic form. Travertine has a fibrous or concentric look and is available in tan, white, and cream tones. It is generated by the fast precipitation of calcium carbonate, which occurs frequently at the outlet of a hot spring or in a limestone cave.

Limestone

Limestone is a sedimentary rock made of different minerals mainly composed of calcite and dolomite deposited as rocks from fossils. Certain limestones were generated through a chemical deposition. Calcite (calcium carbonate) is the principal mineral found in limestones. At present, it's been quarried in different parts of the world to be used as premium construction stones. Limestones are generally available in softer colours like yellow, white and cream, etc. Limestones are formed primarily via the lithification of weak carbonate sediments. Mostly these Limestones blocks having a maximum size of 8ft x 4ft x 4ft and then the slabs are 8ft x 4ft with a thickness of 2-3cm.
