Marble is a calcareous rock with a mid-range of hardness, formed usually by fine grain crystals. This composition contributes to a mirror-like polish finish, which is exceptional in stone. It has a relatively uniform look and is suitable for internal use.
Granite is an igneous rock of volcanic origin and is composed of 30% quartz and 60% feldspar, which give it a high range of hardness. It is very resistant to high wear, with superior abrasion resistance and compressive strength. It is available in a wide range of colors. Historically it was available only in a homogeneous grain, now it is available in veined and patterned varieties. Granite is an excellent material for internal and external building use because of its hardness and resistance to all types of weather.
Onyx is a calcareous material with a very fine, tight grain and numerous veins running concentrically to one another. This translucent stone is synonymous with luxury living and has been used to decorate the living spaces of the rich and famous. It takes a high polish which is part of its great beauty.
