PORPHYRY – European & Far Eastern Sourced

This volcanic rock is formed during a slow cooling process of igneous material, giving it high compressive strength and density.

Porphyry is a stone steeped in history. Having been used as a hard landscaping material as far back as the Babylonian times (1850 BC), Red Porphyry became a symbol of great prestige and majesty for the Roman Emperors.

Why Use Porphyry?

A dense natural stone with stain and mark resistance, Porphyry is a proven choice for an easily maintained paving solution – even the Romans used Porphyry as their preferred paving stone for roads. Porphyry is:

  1. Very Strong & Hard Wearing
  2. Frost Resistant
  3. Suitable for both pedestrian and trafficked areas
  4. Good slip and skid resistant properties

With its warm earth tones of grey, brown, rust, buff and violets, Porphyry is a unique combination of natural beauty and durability that can sit along new and old materials alike.
