Dimensional Stones: Weathering Nature and Technical Properties

S. R. Jakhar, Rajendra Mathur

Rocks are naturally occurring aggregates of minerals. Most of the rocks are consist of many minerals but some are monomineralic. Rocks which are consist of one or more minerals called stones. Stone is a basic building material used by man from pre-historic time. It is clearly evident by statues and monuments of historic times. Even today stones are used for elegance, beauty, durability and decoration of architectural work in houses, hotels, monuments, temples and palaces. A thorough knowledge of mineral composition, weathering nature, geological and engineering properties and accordingly selection of stone will surely increase life of the rock and the building too. Not only this but the screening among different colour of stones will be good for an area remaining under certain conditions of sunlight and what type of stone should not be used for a kitchens plate-form. Which stone will be suitable for exterior or interior of a building The paper is aimed to give an idea of all these characteristics of dimensional stones to common users.
