Among the many varieties of natural stone, porphyry is considered one of the most solid and reliable of all. It guarantees durability and resistance. This is why it is used for flooring or coverings and is especially suited for the outdoors.
In fact, it is in this context that porphyry reaches the height of its expression thanks to an ability to maintain physical-mechanical features that are unaltered through time.
Well known for its hardness, the quality of red porphyry was already recognized in roman and egyptian times and was used to build sepulchres and mausoleums. In later times, it was frequently used by sculptors. Many works of art have remained intact to this day, proving the resistence and durability of this beautiful stone.
