Modern architectural design frequently incorporates the widest possible use of natural stone in buildings, and for extensive use in interior design for walls, floors and furniture. Architects love the colour, texture and accuracy of processed stonework, whilst Property Owners greatly appreciate the low lifecycle cost of maintaining stone finishes and keeping their buildings indefinitely in “as-new” condition.
The amazing range of textures and colours of natural stone, especially marble and granite, and exceptional strength and durability, are all combined to ensure its ongoing popularity as a natural product, delivering high value-for-money, superb appearance and very low maintenance.
Although Saudi Arabia is world-famous for its vast oil reserves, the geology of the Arabian Peninsula also provides a huge diversity of other economically important raw materials, notably natural stones, an amazing range of some of the most beautiful granites in the world, with notable deposits of high quality marble in Oman as well.
This superb natural resource has given rise to an extensive Mining, Quarrying and Stone-Working Industry in Saudi Arabia, supplying the domestic demands of the GCC Countries in architecture and interior design, and sustaining a major export trade in raw and finished stone products, especially granite and marble.
