Quarry Process

The process of getting beautiful granite slabs from quarries all over the world to your home is quite a journey. One by one, huge blocks of stone are drilled and broken into moveable sizes by using time tested methods and modern machinery. After cutting huge blocks of granite from the mountain, other crews of men and machines cut it into smaller pieces capable of being transported to the granite stockyards for processing into building materials. After arriving at the granite stockyard the blocks are loaded into giant gang saws to be cut into the desired thickness. This cutting process can take up to four days to complete, depending on the density of the material. The slabs are then taken to the production plant for completion. They are polished using abrasives and diamond polishing wheels to bring out the beauty of the color and pattern in the granite. The granite slabs are then crated in bundles in preparation for shipping and packed into steel transport containers which are loaded aboard ships bound for the United States and other destinations.
