Mining of Kolmård-marble

The stone varieties Kolmården OXL and Kolmården OX are both from Oxåker, Kolmården. The venation character depends on the direction in which the stone is cut. Kolmården is one of the hardest marble varieties. The marble is a metamorphic, transformed carbonate rock. It has through millions of years of pressure and temperature influence, transformed so that it received an overall crystalline structure. With a large diamond blade, and cable with diamond segments, the stone is cut into blocks out of the quarry. A unique sawing technique makes it possible to cut thin slabs directly from the rock.

Mining of Borghamn-limestone

Borghamn Limestone is mined in Borghamn, Östergötland, not far from the lake Vättern. Limestone is a sedimentary rock with a clear, horizontal stratification which wich is exploited when mining. The two color varieties light grey and grey-brown is mined at different levels of the quarry. The mining is done with a great circular saw. Cutting depth is ajusted to the natural cleavage (horizontal layers) in the rock. The rock is divided into blocks of size suitable for further processing.
