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


A seamless stone texture with porphyritic granite blocks arranged in a herringbone pattern. The image represents a physical area of 3224 x 2544 mm (126.9 x 100.2 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 750 x 50 mm (29.5 x 2 inches). The joints are filled with rough concrete and are 10 mm (0.4 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 herringbone pattern. Named for its resemblance to the skeleton of the herring fish, this pattern is formed with a series of interlocking rectangles positioned perpendicular to each other. It's use in the built environment dates back to at least Roman times and remains popular in contemporary architecture for a range of applications including tiled surfaces and parquet flooring.

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.
