February Chapter Meeting   
The Geology of Dimensional Stone
This presentation will show the many uses of stone. It also covers the origin (how each type of stone is created) and composition (what minerals make up each type of stone) for the most common types of dimensional stone. We will discuss each type of stone in detail and where it should (or should not) be used and why. The presentation will also address some commonly held myths and misinformation that you may have heard about stone
