Monarch Stone International is the exclusive distributor for one of the most prestigious porphyry stone companies in the world; Porfidi International. Our company searched the world for the highest quality natural paving products, making sure that selection and production capabilities would meet our high standards.
Porphyry is a type of volcanic, igneous rock which, along with granite and other rock formations, make up approximately 95% of the world’s “crust.” It is different than granite and is made up of over 70% silica, about 14% alumna, 8% alkali and small percentages of iron, calcium and magnesium.
Residential or Commercial Applications
Porfidi Internationals pavers have high wear resistance and surface regularity that allows comfortable foot travel. These pavers have an even, yet rough surface, which maintains a non slippery property its whole life. They are ADA compliant - making it an ideal choice for commercial and residential use alike. Porphyry is unaffected by freezing and thawing, and because of its high resistance to chemicals, it is particularly recommended for public areas, including plazas, sidewalks, pool decks, fountains and parks. Maintenance costs are low.
Ever-important these days, Porfidi International is a friend to the environment, making sure all of the production phases are eco-friendly – as no toxic substances are used.
Porfidi International owns it own quarries in Italy, Mexico, and Argentina and is the only quarry-owner able to produce finished porphyry in a complete range of stone products: tiles, cobblestones, cubes, pavers, irregular flagging steps, curbstones, borders and wall coverings, in various colors and finishes.
