Travertine Collection: Carbonatic sedimentary rock of chemical origin, with a characteristic cemented of vacuolar structure. Travertine originates due to precipitation of calcium carbonate from saturated water which leaves voids in the stone which is a characteristic of all travertine. These voids are usually filled.
Onyx is a natural stone renowned for elegance and luxury design. The noble Onyx is a most ancient stone, known and utilised by early civilizations for its powerful energy and sombre beauty.
Union Tiles Marble Collection - Stone is the natural construction material par excellence: man has dealt with it from his origins, producing weapons, tools, trinkets, but also building shelters and fences for his protection. The millenary ties between stone and the history of mankind originated with an epochmarking passage, when stones lost their “natural shapelessness” and were “configured”, to follow the aspirations of a construction that was destined to become Architecture, Art, Symbolism and a Wonder for man. Throughout history, in fact, marble has been used in many applications, but one of its highest and most sublime contributions has been within the ambit of architecture, increasing numbers of architects and designers have a predilection for stone because of to the many aesthetic renderings it can take on: modern finishing, which is possible with the use of machinery that employs advanced technologies, allows man to satisfy even the most creative requirements.

Marble is metamorphic rock containing over 50% of carbonate calcites and/or dolomites and/or aragonites. It is indicated as pure if the carbonates exceeds 95% and impure in all other cases. Any compact rock which is strong and can be polished, whose hardness exceeds the values of 4 / 4.5 on the Mohs scale. Commercially, the term includes, in addition to marbles in the strictest sense, calcareous stone, alabasters, cipolin marble, dolostones, onyx, serpentinites, etc...

Travertine is a carbonatic sedimentary rock of chemical origin, with a characteristic cemented vauolar structure. Travertine originates due to precipitation of calcium carbonate from saturated water which leaves voids in the stone which is a characteristic of all travertine. These voids are usually filled.
Granite is magmatic intrusive rock, with an acid chemism, made up of quartz potassic feldspar, plagioclase, mica and accessory minerals. Any compact rock, which is strong and can be polished, whose hardness exceeds the values of 4 / 4.5 on the Mohs scale. Commercially, the term includes almost all magmatic rock.
Sandstone is clastic sedimentary stone, made up primarily from fragments of detritus and mineral granules, having dimensions between 1/16mm and 2mm. There are a great number of types of sandstone, depending on the genesis, structure and composition: eolianite, arkose (feldspathic-quartz sandstones) and lithic arenites (which may also be calcareous containing calcite or aragonite), etc.
Limestone is calcareous rock in the widest sense. In Anglo-Saxon nomenclature this term is often used to distinguish a non-crystalline marble (namely a calcareous stone = limestone) from a crystalline marble (metamorphic stone = marble).
Quartzite is a metamorphic stone, 80% of which is made up of quartz which is often easy to split into slabs or sheets.
Slate is a fine grained, foliated, metamorphic rock which splits along its parallel cleavage plains. The derived vast range of colours is from the minerals contained in the shale from which it was formed.
