The Beauty of Natural Stone
Natural stone was created thousands of years ago when the Earth was just a composition of mineral gases. As these gases began to cool down, they compressed and solidified to form the world as we know it today. It was during this process that natural stone was formed – the type of stone created depends on what type of minerals were combined at that time. This was a slow process that occurred over millions of years. As the Earth began to settle, many of these seams of stone were gradually pushed to the surface by heat and pressure, creating the large formations we see today.
Stone is sourced from many parts of the world, the type of stone is determined by its origins. There are quarries in America, Mexico, Canada, Italy, Turkey, Australia and Brazil.
