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


A seamless stone texture with porphyritic granite arranged in a stretcher pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1620 x 1529 mm (63.8 x 60.2 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 400 x 250mm. 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 running pattern also known as a stretcher bond. The stretcher bond is one of the most common bonds used in masonry construction and uses stretchers, bricks laid flat with their long edge parallel to the wall. Each alternating course is offset by a half stretcher.

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.
