Basalt stone (Lava stone) is produced from volcanic eruptions. This stone has special features which other stone material doesn't have. It is a porous material with holes - which are much bigger on the top layers and become very small at the lower layers. These holes give it some special properties which no other stone can offer - such as sound absorption and insulation, heat insulation and reserve, resistance to freezing, etc.

Basalt brings added interest to any landscape design application. Neutral deep gray tones make Basalt a very rustic material. It is green environmental building material and because it is alkali proof, it can be used in many areas. Basalt fountains are a great way to make a water feature with natural stone.
