With an area of approximately 8.5 million square kilometers, much of it unexplored, Brazil has an enormous potential for research and the discovery of new ornamental stones.

Every year all kinds of new materials are presented to the world as quarrying takes place in new areas. They are not only granites but also marble, quartzite, sandstone, limestone, slates and semi-precious stones, of varied colours and designs. Sometimes the quarries are small and production is limited, other times the deposits are huge. But one thing is common to all-they are all of breathtaking beauty.

Here we present pictures of some of the new exciting Brazilian stones, which have begun to be appreciated in the United States, in the Middle East, Europe and Asian markets, based on their quality, nobility and unique beauty.
