Didkovichi granite and its useful properties
About a hundred kilometers from Zhytomyr to the North, in the vicinity of the village of Didkovichi, there is a deposit of this brown granite. The Didkovichsky quarry itself is a large pit with granite walls, more than 20 meters deep. Moreover, the deeper the blocks of this stone are mined, the better they are – there are fewer cracks in them, and the color is more stable. Regarding the color of Didkovichi granite: for a long time of our work with it, we have established two color selections for this stone:
- dark, rich brown;
- light, rosy brown.
We have a full cycle of stone processing, which allows us to produce products from granite from this deposit with the following types of surfaces:
- Polishing – shiny surface;
- Smooth sanding – shows the depth of color without gloss;
- Heat-treated – a rough surface after flame treatment;
- Sawn – with traces of a diamond tool.
