Mexican Cantera stone is difficult to cut into large slabs due to its texture, it can be found mostly in the form of floor and wall covering tiles. As the matter is, this stone, which is fragile, porous, and not suitable for polishing treathment, is mostly used in outdoor areas and is not recommended in places with heavy traffic.

Mexian Cantera Stone is naturally slip-resistant, thanks to its porous nature, yet it doesn't expand when it becomes wet.
