Dimension Stone Structural Stone fabricates most any type of natural dimension stone with a specialization in regional granites for projects of any size and level of complexity. They include products for interiors, exteriors, landscape, bridges, signs, monuments, and memorials.

      India is pioneer in the exploration, mining of commercial rock deposits and in establishing a firm base for stone industry. India, with an estimated resource of about 1, million cu m, comprising over shades of Dimension Stone Granites (DSG), accounts for about of the world resources. Large blocks of granite dimension stone being loaded at Teignmouth in Dimension stone is natural stone or rock that has been selected and finished (e.g., trimmed, cut, drilled, ground, or other) to specific sizes or shapes. Color, texture and pattern, and surface finish of the stone are also normal requirements.

      ANSI/NSC Sustainable Production of Natural Dimension Stone establishes criteria to measure the extent to which natural stone is produced sustainably using a life cycle approach. Developed by the Natural Stone Council (NSC) in association with Ecoform, an independent consultant, and NSF International, the standard is applicable to quarriers. Natural Stone Institute serves more than members in 58 countries who represent every aspect of the natural stone industry, offering a wide array of technical and training resources, professional development, regulatory advocacy, and networking events.
