GRANITE




The granite is eternal and indestructible with high endurance to low temperature. When polished, it remains intact for millennia. It makes up for 95% of the amount of intrusive rocks worldwide. It contains quartz, biotite, orthoclase and other minerals. The granite possesses all the 3 basic properties of the stones:

  • - hardness;
  • - longevity;
  • - decorativeness.

All these qualities, together with the large variety of colors, dyes and nuances represent a great gift from nature, and how we unite them all is entirely up to your imagination.

Onyx


The onyx is a variety of the agate with alternating stripes, usually white, grey and brown. The width of the stripes, formed under the impact of the changing temperature, varies from few microns to few millimeters.

The onyx is called “The stone of the chieftains.” It enables the achievement of high goals and victory over the enemies. This stone is very useful for businessmen and people of action by making them, enterprising and granting them wisdom, temperateness, courage and purposefulness. It is a stone-guardian, which absorbs and transforms negativity, without accumulating it. The onyx helps control the emotions and negative thoughts. It is considered to be a guardian of the elderly people, whom it protects from trouble and also helps lonely people find their love. It boosts the development of physical strength and endurance, especially when we need support in times of stress. It also guides us towards making the right decisions.

Limestone


The limestone is calcified sedimentary rock, formed on the bottom of lakes and seas as a result of the accumulation of shells, bones and other animal remnants, rich with calcium. The stone consists of calcite (CaCO3), a modification of the calcium carbonate, and the organic substances, which have precipitated in the water basins are preserved as fossils. Layer after layer, for millions of years they have been settling and increasing their weight. Warmth and water pressure have provoked chemical reaction on the bottom and the sediment has turned into a solid rock of limestone. If the content of calcium carbonate exceeds 95%, the stone is called calcium limestone. When it recrystallizes it turns into marble and then it is used as a decorative and construction stone.

Marble


The marble is metamorphic rock, composed of calcite or dolomite (the latter are called dolomite marbles). The coloring varies from pure white all kinds color nuances. Marble rocks are formed through metamorphism of limestone and dolomites. Application: in construction – for cladding and mosaics.

Ancient Greeks used to believe that the gods gave this stone to people in honor of Aphrodite – the goddess of beauty. Therefore the marble is capable of preserving the love in marriage for many years. This is why in those time marble was widely used for the construction of buildings. Through the centuries, up until nowadays the stone has preserved its widespread use in construction. Taj Mahal, for example, is entirely coated with marble.

Gneiss




A “cousin” of the marble in the way of forming. The name of this stone originates from old German and it means “sparkling,” most likely due to its specific warm glitter. The claddings and paintings made of gneiss truly add mysterious and unconstrained charm, unique and luxurious ending of every idea for more beautiful home and garden. Nowadays more and more people prefer to use this stone, because it makes their home shine with warmth and coziness.

Travertine


The travertine is a sedimentary rock polycrystalline rock, formed through precipitation of calcium carbonate from mineral or thermal springs or running water, rich with calcium. It mostly has a striped structure in the direction of the water, but it can also be encountered in the shape of concentric circles. According to the place of formation we can discern travertine form springs, travertine from running waters, travertine from cave (stalagmites, stalactites).

The travertine is a fragile stone, it contains pores. It is usually colored in beige, yellow, white, pink or ocher, depending on the impurities and the minerals. It can contain limestone, clay and other precipitates. Its density is low and uneven – 2,0 g/sm³.It can be polished and varnished.

It is formed as a result of precipitation of calcium carbonate from springing waters. When coming out on the surface the pressure of the underground waters drops abruptly, which leads to the process of chemical reaction, in which the insoluble in water calcium carbonate is released and precipitated.

GALENKOV LTD

Galenkov Company Ltd is established in 2007 with a scope of activity - processing of rock cladding material.
However we have many more years of experience in this sector. We initiated our activity in 1994 with Saturn-R. Galenkova Company. Later on both of the companies have been functioning successfully on the market. Now, we have to our credit 20 years of experience, many accomplished high-order goals and thousands of satisfied customers.

Moreover, we have recently opened our new marble-processing factory in the town of Blagoevgrad.

We dispose of a full cycle of highly productive machines from the world-known marble-processing BRETON Company, 50 knife, block-cutting gang-saw, produced by SIMEC Company and many other machines for cross and lengthwise cutting. We are the only ones in Bulgaria who possess a resin-filling machine, with the help of which the quality of the stone rises many times. The company’s production capacity is between 30 000 – 35 000 m² finished products per month.

At the moment we can guarantee for a quality and quantity of our products competing with that of the big European companies in this sector, but with much more affordable prices than those in Europe.
