Granite is a stone product widely used in architectural interiors and facades. It is regarded as one of the most durable, robust materials within the construction industry, whose use dates back to Ancient Egypt. Granite is available in a range of colours including pink, gold, grey and black, depending on the mineral properties of each slab. It can be applied to internal finishes such as kitchen countertops and furniture, as well as cladding for external facades and public sculptures.

This texture uses a common or American bond. A true common bond contains between three and nine stretcher courses for every header course however the total number of sretchers can be adjusted. A bond with a single stretcher course for every header course is traditionally called an English bond while a bond with five stretchers for every header is known as Scottish 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.
