THE CUMAR CONNECTION
 
FEATURED STONE OF THE MONTH:
Stromatolite
Stromatolite has its origins in the first microbe on this earth. The Stromata microbe was the first living thing on the planet and was the source of the increase of oxygen from 2% to 22%,  enabling humans to exist. It is a sea algae which still lives in a few localities, notably western Australia.
 
The wavy patterns combined with the color are of great interest to paleontologists who have been able to prove that earth is slowing down by analyzing the daily, and yearly sediment build up in the visual structure of stone. 
 
The panel is made form many specimen pieces of Stromatolite to magnify its unique wavy pattern, which is a distinguishing mark of this particular stone.
 
Obsidian is a volcanic glass. Its formation is due to the sudden cooling of lava rich in silica. Usually a dull and rough black color, it transforms into a mirrored glass after polishing. Suitable for indoor use, the Stromatolite is only available in a limited quantity. To schedule an appointment to view our custom stone please call 617-389-7818.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO
 
CUMAR PARTICIPATES IN INTEL SUPERBOWL COMMERCIAL
   
During the Superbowl on Sunday, February 5th, Intel premiered their latest commercial with MVP Tom Brady. CUMAR was honored to be a part of the commercial, providing the kitchen countertops.

The commercial came together this past Fall, when CUMAR's Dawn Carroll got a mysterious call from a production company asking to create a working kitchen for Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, and Intel. With the help of Sean Clarke and his team, along with Sub Zero and Wolf products, Dawn Carroll and the CUMAR team were able to create a movable kitchen with real stone and appliances to fit within tight filming schedule.
