Cooperation with the different stone processing enterprises gives the opportunity to offer a customer different types of granite. It helps to reduce the costs for customers on search of different types of granite.

Kishinskyi granite has the medium-grained pink color; it’s massive, equally grained which hypidiomorphic microstructure. The general color of granite is grayish-pink, consists of the main pink body on which it is watched smoky-gray grains of quartz and small-sized dark stars of biotite. Granite has high strength which in combination with natural density of a stone gives it longevity. Granite can be good cut, grinded and has a mirror polish. There is no crumbling at the edges of the polished surfaces.

Granite from Kishinskyi area has the 1st class of radioactivity, it radiates up to 15 µR/hr, and it is much less, than the modern brick or concrete.

Mechanical-and-physical properties of the granite

Volume weight: 2620 kg/m ³

Water absorption: 0,25%

Durability on compression: 241 MPas

Bending resistance: -

Abradability: 0,61 g/cm ²

Mineral composition:

  • Microcline: 48%
  • Plagioclase: 14%
  • Quartz: 35%
  • Biotite: 2%

Kishinskyi granite is traditionally used in building, design, manufacture of finishing materials, monuments and other quite unique products.

Opportunities and perspectives
We are planning to organize the export of granite blocks in the future, provided active cooperation with the stone processing enterprises in China, Poland and Italy.
