Natural stone brings a little piece of Earth’s history right into your home. Building an understanding for how rocks form and why they have various properties will help you appreciate them and guide customers to the stone that is best for them. Part two of this series explains basic geology in a user-friendly format, and goes on to explore various types of families of rocks; igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic.
