Nuestro Porfido
  Ethimologically speaking, the Latin term “porphyra = purple rock”, is a rock produced from the solidification of volcanic magma which was formed approximately 250 million years ago.

Their colours ranging from red to maroon, from lilac to violet and the contrast of tuff rocks with the light colour thereof, cause our quarry to be a unique and exclusive place in the world for this type of materials.

Porphyries with significant symbolic and esthetic value have exhausted quarries in Egypt and the Trentino Region in Italy, which gives our Patagonia –together with other existing exploitations- an increasingly significant supply potential permitting us to offer to the world a product having unique characteristics as regards colour and physical conformation.
