Amazing Stoneworks – Petra

Al KhaznehOne of my personal favorites and somewhere I have personally visited is Petra in Jordan. Petra, meaning ‘stone’ in Greek, was founded around the 6th century BC partly due to it’s position as being  along a trade route and easily defensible.

Many parts of the site, which is vast, are hewn directly from the mountains themselves.

Due to time limitations, our visit had to be at night. We were treated to Bedouin singing and mint tea followed by a description of the site. The walk to Petra from the visitor centre is surprisingly long and really gives the visitor an impression of how things were all that time ago. This is made easier by the musty scent of camel droppings and candles lighting your way.

  As expert stone workers, we’re obviously biased in favour of our favourite material. However, even to us it’s clear that although stone is fantastically varied, resilient and durable, it’s not the right material for every job. It’s also true that there are cheaper options available. So with all that in mind, how can you tell if stone is the right choice for you?   How much more expensive is stone really? Per meter, natural stone is one of the most expensive worktop materials. However, it’s comparable to high quality […]
