What is Porphyry?
Porphyry is a type of igneous stone which consists of large-grained crystals such as quartz, dispersed in a dense fine-grained matrix. It's a very dense volcanic stone which has a significant amount of colour variation. Typically porphyry is not quarried in large blocks like granite, but instead sheers off and has a natural split finish. It's extracted in a similar way to slate or other sedimentary split stones.
