Natural stone is as timeless as the universe. A design of creation’s own architecture frozen in time and space, it speaks a sensuous and evocative language; one of color and textures, of feelings and richness, of its passage from its geological beginnings through 4 billion years to the present day.
When it comes to a natural material, it’s hard to find something that fits the bill better than stone — but does it fit in with a growing new trend of socially responsible construction? The idea of environmentally friendly construction dates back to at least the early 1970s, reappearing in the nation’s conscious every time energy prices take a bump.
According to market sources, industry analysts expect the phenomenal growth in the natural stone industry to continue. Fueled by a revival in the demand for natural stone in the last decade or so, the industry has seen sharp rises in output production.
