Decorating your home, office, commercial spaces and elsewhere with items made of natural stone could be the ultimate desire for you and many other people.
Any natural stone we see around us is a result of a fascinating evolutionary process, which have historically been used in various shapes with a wide range of applications.
Nowadays, there are numerous alternatives in the market but natural stones are still something special. The main reasons could be the fact that natural stone materials create a unique eye catching look, unmissable sense of high quality and luxury. At the same time, they are more durable and robust than similar engineered and manufactured products.
Decorating your office, home etc. with natural stones is in fact to bring a part of planet earth’s long history so close to you, which is undoubtedly a fantastic feeling.
Despite a wide spread interest for stones,
there are some key factors which could make stone material less achievable for
many consumers. Higher prices of natural stone material and finished products
could be some of the major barrier for many people to choose more often these
wonderful material. But, why are stone materials generally expensive?
Obviously, processing the stone material from quarry to a finished product requires an advanced and costly fabrication process, however, Aura Stone believe that the involvement of many middlemen and dealers could have a considerable impact on the higher price of natural Stone Material for the end-users. Logically, minimising the amount of the middlemen
in the Stone trade process would make stone material more affordable for many
people, which is Aura Stone’s ultimate intention and mission.
Aura Stone is passionate about natural stones, their unique properties, amazing patterns and textures. Any piece of natural stone we see around us is actually a fascinating result of an outstanding evolution of mother nature’s minerals.
Slowly, over billions of years, they have been exposed to various chemical and
physical reactions and have been shaped as we see them today. We do
believe that there are no products around us with such a long and patient
production process, isn’t that fantastic?
Our ambition is to inspire people and at the same time make it easy to use natural stones more frequently at homes, in offices, in commercial or public spaces and elsewhere. Unfortunately, the presence of too many, and often unnecessary, middlemen on the natural stone’s path from quarries to the end-user makes natural stone material generally too expensive for many people. Our intention is to break this Status Quo by being a reliable short cut between quarry owners and end users. This makes premium quality natural stone material more accessible and affordable for a wide range of
