Why Porphyry Makes the Perfect Paver


Natural Stone Pavers Last a Lifetime

Porphyry deposits are formed when a column of rising magma is cooled in two stages.  In the first stage, the magma is cooled slowly in the earth’s crust. In the second stage the magma cools rapidly at a shallow depth (or as it erupts from a volcano).

Although used throughout history, porphyry is still in common use today as driveway paving and “cobblestone” streets.   While cobblestones conjure images of old fashioned bumpy streets, modern porphyry is prized for its smoothness.  In fact, this type of paver is known for its slip resistance, hardness, and natural stone beauty.
