Clay is the best. Many kilns make hollow clay tiles specifically to keep the house insulated. These are thicker than vitrified tiles, verging on being almost 2 inches thick.

This is a lovely article. We recently bought a house in South Delhi and I have used jaiselmer stone extensively..I would like to know if cuddapah can be used on stairs. Does it mould well, since one needs to make the lip of the nose. Please let me know.
