  • Introducing several Schist stones from Massachusetts…… ……after over 400 million years of metamorphosis, from ancient mountains worn down into muddy sediment beds on the floor of a long extinct ocean or the cooled and hardened magma cores of old volcanos than through the slow crush of continents, the mud or magma was folded up and inexorably changed by heat and pressure…this timeless process continues through us and on to you. Our part in the metamorphism of one of the oldest stones in the Northeast is the careful quarrying, sawing and finishing in our energy efficient, state-of-the-art fabrication shop. Your part in the ongoing process is that special design that incorporates this stone in what will become your legacy.
