Highest Decorative Stones Reserve in Lorestan

Lorestan Province with 300 million ton decorative stones has got the first rank in the country. The General Manager of Lorestan Industrial research Institute announced that through investing in processing rocks this province can change to an important rock producing area.
   He said almost 24 m tons of decorative stones were produced globally in 2001, of which Iran's share was meager 1/27 percent.
   At present, some, 4,000 units with a production capacity of 40-45 million square meters of decorative stones are operation.
   Though Iran is not considered as major exporter, it possesses stones that are unique in the world such as travertine and onyx.
