Why stone!

We are researchers of natural beauty.
We feel privileged because we are the first to see what Mother Nature has built and preserved for us underground.
We travel in Africa and Brazil to bring unique specimens of marble, granite, quartzite and natural quartz to the light of day.
We know these materials and their technical and physical characteristics very well.
We are not just sellers, but we want to offer you the most suitable material for your architectural and design project. We have many reasons to recommend our materials.
We do this in this section of the site.

Both are naturally occurring. Both are born from the earth. Both must be worked to be useful in the daily life of man and woman. But if wood for furniture and architecture can also be found in Italy, our Jatoba Brown quartzite, on the other hand, can only be found in South America, in the Brazilian subsoil.

Choosing to focus on the essential is a real lifestyle that influences the furniture, clothing, everyday objects and consequently the buying habits. This is a demanding but sustainable demand for our planet, because it is characterized by responsible choices that give peace to the spirit.

Grey Bayou: semi-precious material for a modern style

Our group extracts Gray Bayou natural quartz in Brazil, where the most precious quartzites come from. We look at the walls and blocks of this material in the quarry and we seem to see a dark sheet torn, from which comes out the light and bright light of the quartz.
