Granites are volcanic rocks that are formed by the freezing of molten material inside the earth’s crust. For this reason, they are mostly seen as coarse-grained tissue. This stone has a great variety of colors that can be chosen according to the form and position of the building facade. The color of granite is usually controlled by the type and amount of feldspar and may appear pale gray-pink to pink or red. In the absence of pink, the range of colors from light gray to dark gray is mainly determined by the ratio of feldspar and quartz to biotite and hornblende. Bright, red and pink granites are very valuable because of their color and have a special place in the world market and Iran.

The red granites of Khoy region in West Azerbaijan are unique in this respect. Gray granites vary in quality depending on the degree of brightness and the size of the minerals. Shirkuh granites in Yazd and Alvand in Hamedan form a wide range of types of granites that have no alteration effects and have tolerated tectonic phenomena, especially micro-tectonic, and are also marketable in terms of color. Nehbandan granite of South Khorasan is also one of the popular granites of Iran and we have a variety of them for sale in Behsang Stone.


Marble is formed as a result of the operation of limestone hot springs. Marble is usually seen as layers between layers of travertine. The main constituent of marble is calcium carbonate. The higher the purity, the whiter the marble will be, and the presence of magnesium and aluminum salts in the marble will cause the marble to become colored. Like green marble, pink marble, honey marble and etc.

Marble has various applications in the construction and decoration industry due to its special beauty, high susceptibility and light transmission properties.

Marble has long been used in religious places, palaces and luxury buildings. But today, builders, engineers and architects use marble in lobbies, halls, bathrooms and interior decoration as marble slabs or marble book matches due to the lighting capability behind marble.
