Description

A seamless stone texture with porphyritic granite blocks arranged in a chevron pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1283 x 1229 mm (50.5 x 48.4 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 200 x 100 mm (7.9 x 3.9 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 is an example of a chevron pattern. The chevron pattern contains a series of parallelograms which meet at their ends to form a V shape which is then repeated. The appearance of the chevron can be varied by adjusting the angle of each parallelogram. It is commonly used in interior design for parquet flooring and tile surfaces.

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.
