Taj Mahal: the desired Quartzite

Taj Mahal is named after one of the most important monuments in India, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but 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 slightly transparent. At first sight, this transparency combined with the brightness and undulating structure reminds us of marble or even of onyx. The surface is streaked by wavy and dark veins, whose colours are mostly varying between amber and grey with almost metallic shades.

If you analyse the technical characteristics of this material, such as hardness and biomechanical resistance, you will recognise that this material, from a technical point of view, differs very much from marble and it is often classified as granite on sale.
