Description

A seamless stone texture with porphyritic granite blocks arranged in a stack pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1620 x 944 mm (63.8 x 37.2 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 400 x 100 mm (15.7 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 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.
