The search for the perfect stone
It’s all about aesthetics. We don’t just want a black stone, we want the blackest stone. Or a black stone with something extra.
We have been going on a “stone” hunt at least once a year, for many years. On these trips, we search for aggregates that technically and aesthetically meet our standards.
We visit lots of quarries to see the materials they have to offer. We look at the extracted raw material to check whether the colour is stable. We take samples home to test them. We also check whether the aesthetic qualities of these samples meet our customers’ request.
