Based on world statistics, Iran has the highest degree of stone diversity in the world. While other countries like India and Brazil that are well-known in the place of stone industry, just have one kind of stone quarries and that is Granite or the country of Italy just has the marble stone quarries. Whereas, Iran has these kinds of quarries like Marble, Granite, Crystal, Travertine, Onyx, Sandstone, and Limestone and has a huge number of reservoirs. Iran has more than 30 provinces and just in one of them (southern Khorasan), more than thirty kinds of stones with diverse color spectra have been extracted.
The extension and dispersion of stone quarries all over Iran made this country one of the 10th countries in the amount of extraction of building stones in the world. It’s good to know that the 13percent of Crystal stones in the whole world existed here in one of the provinces of Iran which is called Lorestan.
Iranian stone in raw form exported to countries like Turkey, Italy, and China and then after processing and packaging, assembled with the name of the Italian stone exported to other countries as Iran itself!
Stone is a natural and mineral substance, so that means geographical location and construction techniques have not any kind of impact on it. most of the stone quarries are situated in remote and deprived areas of the country. The only thing that matters is the processing variety of that natural and mineral substance. Because stone and wood are natural and mineral materials and humanity have not no role in the structural formation of them and these materials are not like brick and ceramic that are manufactured products and you can change the structure, form, size, and color.
This is a misconception that we use the term of production for the processing of stone. Because production means assembling and combining a set of materials and parts. While stone is a natural substance that forms through millions of years in nature and by humans will be processed based on the type of use and exploitation. Cut, polishing, and resin are completely related processes of the stone and not the production.
When we place a foreign name on the stone or we import it from other countries, it is thought that logically it is a fine stone and has the highest quality. But necessarily it is not like that. As if most of the imported stones got the stylish and temporary appearance by chemical materials or injectable materials like color, adhesive, wax, and polish but over time lose their primary beauty. However, it can be acknowledged that good and precise processing and package type have a major impact on the sales amount.
In recent years has been made a good investment in stone processing sections and stone cutting factories by upgrading the production line, they can process stones on a global scale and can compete with European countries, China, India, and Brazil.
Processing every 5 square meters of building stone daily for 3 people directly and 2 people indirectly create employment.
Therefore, our suggestion for more variety and permanent and wanted quality is the preparing Iranian stone.
