Introduction of Coral Stone

Updated:2012-12-31 16:38:49
Coral Stone is a natural stone that contains numerous marine fossils, minerals and other organisms that are estimated to be over 65 million years old. It owns the following features: temperature resistant: stays cool when exposed to sun; a no-skid surface; a non-slip material and so on. Its applications include flooring, walls, pavers, columns, around pools, Jacuzzis and also to make table tops and other decorative accessories.

The Spaniards who reached the New World around end of the XV century or towards the beginning of the XVI century, guided by Christopher Columbus, used for the buildings of their new settlements and the main social buildings, a limestone which, even today, can be found in abundance in the Dominican Republic and Colombia, denominated the Coral Stone.

This stone was formed in the riverbeds in the period Pleistocene, starting from the fossils, corals and other marine animals, thus the majority of the coral limestone has originated in the reefs.

In the coastal area of south of the Dominican Republic is where this stone is found the most, though there are also important deposits in the northern part, as also in the province of Samaná, Gaspar Hernández, and Cordillera Septentrional. There are currently six quarries being exploited and there around 10 companies which work with stone in the Dominican Republic.
