“Kösseine Granit” is particularly prized for its use in natural stonework thanks to its unique blue colour, porphyritic texture and proven quality. Numerous historical buildings bear witness to this. The good physical and technical properties of this stone allow almost unlimited interior and exterior applications. Its tested and certified frost-salt resistance is another major asset.
The Pfalzbrunnen quarry has been in operation for several centuries now. “Kösseine Granit” is the only blue granite currently quarried in Europe.
Regional “Kösseine Granit” is a highly sustainable building material.

Description of natural stone
Proof and confirmation of suitability by EC declaration of conformity, as well as CE marking available. We will be happy to provide you project related with references, test reports and further information.
The displayed stone samples illustrate the kind of material extracted from the quarry in question. As a natural material, stone is subject to variations in colour, texture and grain structure. It can also have natural inclusions, markings or veining. A typical stone patina may develop due to material-related or environmental influences.
