The Marble Institute of America has released an updated version of their popular consumer-oriented showroom video, From the Quarry to the Kitchen.  This video tells the story of natural stone, how it emerges from quarries around the world and is transformed into a thing of beauty in homes and offices.

First released in 2005, the updated video contains many enhancements that reflect the technological advancements that have been made in the last 7 years. An expanded section on digital templating, information on the sustainability of natural stone, and the function of sealers are all touched on in the updated video.

Matt Lalibert of Ripano Stoneworks had this to say, “The updated video brings new technology and a fresh look to this important consumer video.  It’s great that the MIA has packaged this video with the sustainability presentation as well."  He went on to say, "I now have more options to educate consumers and the architectural community about natural stone."

From the Quarry to the Kitchenis available from the MIA’s online bookstore and is packaged with Natural Stone – Beautiful, Durable, Sustainable, MIA’s sustainability showroom video. The two videos are configured to play individually or in a continuous loop. For more information, visit:
