Garnet amphibolite

Polychrome color (alternating stripes of black with white specks, white and black-red), structure from fine to medium-grained, texture is massive, banded, spotted, platy. Within the boundaries of one mountain range, a subspecies of garnet amphibolite “Ice Tundra” is mined, it is distinguished by a large inclusion of white minerals.

It works well and lends itself to polishing, and due to its unique color and texture it has become a very popular material for finishing work and interior solutions. It is also widely used in the ritual sphere. It has no analogues.
