A seamless stone texture with porphyritic granite blocks arranged in a flemish pattern


A seamless stone texture with porphyritic granite blocks arranged in a flemish pattern. The image represents a physical area of 915 x 1009 mm (36 x 39.7 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 300 x 500 mm (11.8 x 19.7 inches). The joints are filled with mortar and are 5 mm (0.2 inches) in width.

Porphyritic granite is a stone material popular within architecture and construction. While possessing the same properties of regular granite, porphyritic granite differs due to the presence of visible crystals embedded within the rock. Its popularity can be traced back to the Ancient Romans, who used porphyritic granite in the construction of columns, sculptures, or cladding. Today, its unique texture makes it a popular choice for internal polished surfaces or decorative items, and to a lesser extent, in walls, flooring, and external facades.

This texture uses a flemish pattern, which comes from the Flemish bond used brick construction. The Flemish bond alternates between stretchers which are full width units, and headers which are half width units along each row. The headers in each course are centred on the stretchers below.

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.
