Basalt Stack

49.5 in

A seamless stone texture with basalt arranged in a stack pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1258 x 2428 mm (49.5 x 95.6 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 400 x 100 mm. The joints are filled with mortar and are 5 mm (0.2 inches) in width.

Basalt is a distinctive, dark natural stone used commonly within architecture and construction. While historically used as a crushed aggregate material in roads, concrete, and railways, basalt has also become popular as a slab or panel of choice in the construction of buildings, due to its fine grain and dark complexion. Basalt is therefore commonly used in cladding for external facades, or in a polished form for floor tiles, surfaces, or monuments.

This texture uses a stack pattern. The stack pattern is the most basic of the standard patterns in architecture and interior design with each unit simply stacked one above the other and no horizontal or vertical offsets. When used in masonry construction, materials arranged in a stack bond typically require additional reinforcement when compared with a standard running bond.

This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
