From the depths of the ocean, volcanic activity rose to the surface, creating islands of basalt stone where some of the world’s earliest people formed great cities and governments. These early empires give rise to Civilization, a basalt-inspired line of porcelain tile from Crossville. The smooth, fine-grained stone naturally varies in color from light to dark, and Civilization follows suit with six natural incarnations of basalt featuring unique crystalline visuals and subtle movement found in these unique rock formations.

As always, Crossville’s porcelain is manufactured in the USA to the highest standards. As grand as the early republics, Civilization features an impressive 24x48 tile in both unpolished and semi-polished finishes, along with a 24x24 and 12x24. Civilization is offered in a unique polygon mosaic, a 2x2 mosaic, and a standard bullnose and cove base.
