Products   Porphyry cubes    
Porphyry cubes are cube-like shaped paving elements obtained by means of mechanical splitting, with natural surface. Cubes are made in different sizes on the basis of the thickness of the slabs from which they are made, i.e.: 4/6 – 6/8 – 8/10 – 10/12 – 12/14 and 14/18. They are classified into irregular cubes (irregular visible surface and thickness), used for overlapping arcs patterns and concentric patterns, and fixed dimensions cubes (10x10cm cubes), used for parallel row patterns. The smaller sizes are more suitable for pedestrian areas, while the largest ones provide a better alternative for transiting of heavy traffic and wherever you want to recreate the sense and feeling of the paving of ancient times. The most widespread pattern for laying is overlapping arcs. For courtyards and town squares, cubes may also be used in parallel rows. Peacock tail or circular patterns can be laid using different porphyry colours or even with other types of natural stone to enhance the porphyry’s aesthetic appearance.
