Taj Mahal: the quartzite of your dreams

Taj Mahal: the quartzite of wondersTaj Mahal is named after one of the most important monuments and world heritage of India, but actually, this fantastic material comes from Brazil and is one of those materials that cannot be easily classified.    

Taj Mahal is an amber-coloured stone with a beige background colour and it is a bit transparent. At first sight, this transparency combined with its brightness and undulating structure reminds us of marble or even of onyx. 

If we analyse the technical characteristics of this material, such as hardness and biomechanical resistance,  we have to recognise that this material, from a technical point of view, differs very much from marble and commercially it is often classified  as granite.

 

Actually, Taj Mahal is neither marble nor granite; it is a quartzite from Brazil and due to its sophisticated elegance and resistance to scratches and to chemicals (even to potent acids), it suits best for interior fittings. Architects and interior designer often use this material to realise kitchen tops, table tops, vanity tops, covering and interior pavement.

Polished and satinated surfaces are much sought-after because they emphasize the colour and design of the material and are able to create a cosy and elegant room atmosphere.  

Of course, these details are only guidelines, let your imagination run wild to exalt the beauty of this material at its shiniest.
