Stone - How It's Made - (1) Quarris as the Birthplace

Updated:2007-11-14 14:16:30

You might think that getting natural stone from a quarry to your home's floor is a fairly simple process. Something like just slice and ship.

But like all pieces of art, which natural stone should be considered, there's also a real art to its production.

Part art, creativity and passion, part science, system and technology.

We invite you to join us in this section as we explain all the parts to you -- in the event you choose natural stone as the flooring solution for the way you live.

As we said in the Why Natural Stone section, the formative process for natural stone began millions of years ago, deep beneath the surface of the earth.

For millions of years, a combination of heat and pressure created blocks of natural stone, including granite, marble, travertine, limestone, and slate.

As the earth's crust began to grow and erode, it pushed minerals up from its core, forming massive rock deposits, which we refer to as "quarries".


Think of quarries as the birthplace of natural stone.

These quarries are found in many countries throughout the world: Italy, China, Spain, India, Canada, Mexico and the United States.

There, people who have been quarrying stone for generations, work with precision and passion, with expert selection skills, and a devotion to their craft that's second to none.

They are among the world's last true artisans and their pride and heritage runs as deep as the stone they quarry.

We're sure they would be honored to see their artwork showcased across the floors of your home.

However, science now plays a major role at the quarry.

Recent advances in the stone industry's equipment and technology have greatly impacted the process of extracting stone from the quarry and installing it in a home.

Today's modern tools can accomplish this with speed and efficiency.
