The granite of Kozárovice
Kozárovice granite (granodiorite) is mined around the village of Kozárovice, which falls into the quarrying area of the Central Bohemian (Sázava) pluton. Kozárovice granite has been known for more than 100 years. In 1900 it was used in the construction of the Viennese parliament and subsequently in many other constructions throughout Europe. In the Czech Republic, we can see it in the courtyard of Zvíkov Castle, in the Prague metro (line “A” and “C” as tiles), on the stairs of the National Museum and in many other places. Granite has a medium grain size, the color is gray to blue-gray with frequent gray-black inclusions with a size of 2-10 cm. It is mostly used in the outdoors for building blocks, cube pavings and rough stonework. In the interior, it is mostly used as cut tiles for large floors with a lot of traffic. Thanks to its quality, it is a very popular assortment on the Czech and foreign markets.
