Trachyte paving

The Euganean trachyte is extracted in the province of Padova and is one of the main stones used in Triveneto.

Trachyte is an effusive magmatic rock used in construction and urban furniture. It is a stone that matches aesthetically well with porphyry and it is predominantly gray or yellowish. It is mainly used for outdoor flooring because of its great resistance to human wear and weather, this is due to its porphyry structure; it hence has a microcrystalline composition that gives it a high mechanical strength.
