Marble

Marble is a metamorphic stone composed primarily of calcium carbonate or calcite. Generally with consistent background and veins, marble is available in a variety of colors. It is a stone which has undergone change through exposure of intense heat and pressure inside the earth. In the stone industry many dense limestones are often referred to as marble such as Crema Marfil and Rojo Alicante.

Granite

In the commercial stone industry a “granite” is a stone that is harder than marble. Under this definition gabbro, basalt, schist, gneiss, diorite and many other stones are referred to as “granite”. True granites are typically light-colored igneous stones with grains large enough to be visible to the naked eye. It forms during slow crystallization of magma deep below the Earth's surface. Granite is composed mainly of quartz and feldspar with minor amounts of micas and other minerals. This composition usually gives granite a red, pink, gray or white color with dark mineral grains.

Limestone

Limestones are sedimentary rocks composed primarily of calcium carbonate.

They usually form from marine life whose shell and skeletal remains accumulated as sediment and have lithified into limestone. These sedimentary carbonate stones are common on every continent and most have evolved through geologic history in warm, shallow, marine waters.

Slate

Slate is a sedimentary stone that started as shale and has undergone change. The original clay minerals in shale alter to micas with increasing levels of heat and pressure within the Earth. Most slates are gray in color but also occur in shades of green, red, black, purple and brown.

The color of slate is often determined by the amount and type of iron and organic material that is present when the stone was formed. Slate may also contain quartz ,feldspar, calcite, pyrite, and other minerals.

Information on Wood products we offer.

Some Folks say that “there’s no fuel like an old fuel” and these words definitely pertain to our favorite fuel—Wood. Wood just seems to have more “soul” than many other fuels and it can be used in a tremendous variety of ways. Wood is truly a renewable fuel. The heat released from wood is actually stored solar energy—released from its bounds when consumed in a stove. Our country has vast resources of wood. Properly managed, these forests could provide large fuel wood supplies forever. In addition, the new EPA approved stoves burn wood cleaner and more efficiently than ever before. As older stoves are replaced with newer ones, any concerns about “wood smoke pollution” will quickly fade.

Information on Pellet products we offer.

Pellet-burning appliances are simpler to operate and more convenient than other wood-burning appliances. In fact, they are almost as easy to use as gas, oil, or electric heaters. These stoves and inserts burn wood pellets—compressed wood which resembles rabbit food. Wood Pellets Typical Pellet Stove Pellet-burning appliances rely on sophisticated computers and circuit boards to determine how much pellet fuel should be burned. Most models have at least two burn settings and some use thermostats to control the fire. They also use a forced-air system to distribute heat. Pellet-burning appliances are highly efficient and pollute very little. Depending on the model, they may furnish between 10,000 and 60,000 Btu per hour.

Information on Coal Products we offer.

Coal stoves are quite similar to their wood burning cousins. Most use natural draft (don’t need electric or a fan assist for combustion), and have the same chimney requirements as wood stoves. In the past, many stoves were designed to burn both coal and wood. This type of stove is rare now, as the EPA standards have forced manufacturers to “tune” their stoves for one fuel or the other.

All Coal Stoves must have grates and an ashpan or ash removal area. Coal produces 10 times as much ash per pound as wood does, so a large ashpan is a good feature. For coal to burn properly the combustion air must enter below the grates and come up through the coal bed. Most natural draft coal stove use a medium to larger size coal (Chestnut size).
