In fact, it doesn’t care much! with all the confusion, it has brought with itself to everyone. No one can define Corona virus any boundary or person. It took anyone who ignores it in the worse than any miserable way one can imagine. The only way is to stay home and think twice or even three times! Corona virus has done many bad things in this world, but it has good side too. Although it caused all death it could cause and is still causing, watching groups of people united in one country with any race, sex or religious belief make us wonder we are still having that human’s gene in our blood. The most outstanding example of such unification can be seen among doctors and nurses who sacrifice their lives to save others.

Pietra Grey Marble quarries which are located in south of Isfahan and very close to city, have provided this possibility that this stone with strong distinctive white veins in different directions and thicknesses which is highly resistant, very low water absorbent and beautiful to be installed as step treads and interior walls, can be used in most of the monuments in Isfahan city. The quarry has about 360,000 tons of capacity for the next 10 years. Pietra gray slab can be produced in 2 and 3 thickness. The use of Pietra Gray Marble for the façade of buildings is not recommended since its black color changes to grey due to sunlight. One of the disadvantages of this building stone is the accumulation of dark veins that may be evacuated during the time destroys the beautiful look of stone.

Recently, Pietra Gray slab has found its fame among European innovative designs and has been used widely in conjunction with other marbles.

The price for Pietra Gray blocks depends on many different factors. Some of the blocks have internal cracks, some other have burnt stains, chain lines or lighter in color compared to other Pietra Gray blocks; that leads the supplier of Pietra Gray blocks to offer a very low price for such blocks. Although, our company, Radsamstone, has gathered a collection of the best Pietra Gray blocks in its stockyard and offers you the Pietra gray blocks with the most cost consuming price.; that is, the prices for Pietra gray blocks are in line with the quality of blocks.

You can personally come to Iran and pay a visit to our factory and quarry.

WHY TIHOO MARBLE?

Tihou Black

Marbles can be in different kinds, including calcites (from calciferous limestones), dolomites (from dolomitic limestone), serpentines (typically green marbles) and travertines (sedimentary limestone). Each of these is similar in their composition, that being predominantly calcium carbonate, and their capability to take a polish. The stone that is quarried west of Belen in central New Mexico is a travertine marble.

Marble can be found in grey, and white, beige, pink or even green, and black.  Marbles are known for their smooth lines, beautiful veins, smooth surface, which is ideal not only for kitchen countertops but also for flooring, as well as for the bathrooms. In any area, marble will be noticeable due to its natural appearance, giving elegance and luxury to the interior.

Elegant and refined, Tihoo marble is the best-suited one for decorating not only the living spaces but also the office foyers that usually serve as the corporate identity of the company. Moreover, any marbled interior creates a striking effect of luxury, elegance, and reliability.  It is worth mentioning that Tihoo marble, in comparison with other natural stones, is quite an affordable option, which makes it more attractive today for use as construction or facing material.

Tihoo black Marble is a rock widely used in buildings, monuments, and sculptures.  Tihoo Marble is a type of metamorphic rock formed from limestone. Tihoo Marble is found in Iran.

Tihoo Marble is formed from limestone under the pressure from the heat of the earth’s crust causing recrystallization. Impurities in the limestone during recrystallization influence the mineral composition of the Tihoo marble. In terms of mining, Tihoo marble cannot be split easily into sheets of equal size and must be mined carefully. Tihoo Marble has long been highly valued for its beauty, strength, and resistance to fire and erosion.

Large blocks of Tihoo marble can be used for columns, floors, and other parts of buildings. Smaller pieces of such marble are crushed or finely ground and used as abrasives in soaps and other products. Crushed or ground Tihoo marble is also used in paving roads and in manufacturing roofing materials and soil treatment products. Tihoo Marbles have similar characteristics to limestones and are typically used on the same applications, though, marbles are almost always more aesthetically valuable and available in a much wider range of colors. Tihoo marbles are suitable for both interior and exterior applications but it should be noted that with today’s environment containing so many pollutants if a polish finish is specified on marble, it will not last.

 We at Radsam stone Company are ready to supply Tihoo block, slab, and tile in large amount for our customers. We have very reliable sources in Iran and our clients are welcome to come to Iran and visit the factory and quarry.

Beyond the pistachio and carpet of Iran, Iran is known as one of the main resources for natural stones. Having our own stockyard, we also can supply Pietra gray block and slab in the large amounts. Travertine tile is the other option we always have on the table for our clients. We hope to see you soon in Iran.

To build a long-time relationship with the clients in the natural stone industry is a time-consuming task.

In terms of choosing materials, the client can come to the factory, or stockyard to choose the block or slab. they come and mark the blocks and choose what fits their own clients or market.

The Undeniable Role of Women In Stone Industry

radsaam stone

The role of women in every walks of life cannot be denied. Like other industries, the woman can make a great difference in the stone industry as well. The question is if the appearance of women in the stone industry can make any changes in terms of commercial relations, sale rank and also customers҆ services. No one can deny the role of women in Iran in industries such as saffron, carpet, packing and handmade materials. On the other hand, we cannot deny the low potentiality for the role of women in other industries like natural stone industries. As it is defined in the traditional and cultural framework in Iran, the stone industry is always defined as man’s job and usually, no one can see the conspicuous role of women in this industry. In recent years, Iran observed, many female entrepreneurs working on different industries including the natural stone industry. In fact, one of the main factors in the development of the world is the role of female entrepreneurs. Of course, like other parts of the world, there are some injustices against women in this respect.

radsamstone.com
radsamstone.com

For example, only about 1% out of 100 % of all properties in the world is in the hand of women. To reach a higher rank of development, Iran has been a pioneer to give the women a chance to step in fields that traditionally and culturally defined as male industries. Especially, in recent years, women have been very active in the natural stone industry and prove their ability in this respect. Since women naturally have the sense to be patient and also have been more cautious in commercial business comparing to men, that helps them to be more accurate in business and making a very trusted and long- term relationship with their partners and clients around the world. 

It is worth mention that there is a general view about working and employment that mainly changes the view of people towards making money.  A great job is generally defined as a routine pattern of job work from morning to night. Although, in the field of the stone industry what works well cannot be seen much on routing appearance in office but a constant advertisement in different social media and building a long-term relationship with the clients.

Women can present a new approach to commercial relationships. Moreover, there are some ethical issues exist in different parts of organizational systems in Iran that make such an approach difficult to reach.  Although, today, women working outside the house especially female entrepreneurs do their best to balance the distinction issues existed in different industries concerning their abilities for what has been defined as the men-based jobs and business. Examples of such successful women in the stone industry have been the main priority in Radsam Company in which from top to bottom are managed by women both in export and import departments. we are one of the main suppliers of marbles especially Pietra Gray (block and slab), Travertine (tile), Onyx (slab & tile) and Granite (slab &tile) To become familiar with the principles behind establishing Radsam Stone Company and also to work side by side with us, please check our website at www.radsamstone.com or WhatsApp us: +989990988815, +989336336154.

Peace Is the Only Option On the Table for All Humankind

radsamstone.com

Clearly speaking, peace can be defined as the desire of every beating heart. Peace is the hope of every nation, the promise of every politician, the pulse of every religious tradition, the goal of every prayer and the dream of every human being.  Peace is the bold, courageous and ultimate response to the notion that violence provides any viable solution for the conflicts of our world. Where war destroys and tears apart, peace builds, strengthens and restores. At the same time, peace is personal, for each of us longs for security and tranquility in the face of the troubles, anxiety, and chaos that often touch our lives. Within our faith communities, peace speaks of a right relationship with the Holy, and with our neighbors and with the whole of creation. As Taoist author Deng Ming Dao puts it: “The peace of one individual is small. The peace of many people together is big. When we see ourselves as separate from our community and from nature, then violence and strife arise. “

There is no doubt peace is the key cornerstone in each society. Without peace, there won’t be any opportunity for anything. No business, no success and no future. That is why peace is the most important thins after human beings’ essential needs like water, air, and food.  Lack of peace in every society changes the life of one or even more generations of a country but the important thing is that effect will continue for the whole history of a country.

To have all positive activities, peace is the key. Since such activities can happen in an atmosphere of peace.  Such a peaceful atmosphere can build a normal relation among people. And makes the feeling of love and friendship to prevail. In such a favorably peaceful atmosphere, creativity flourish and existing resources can be used for development or other creative activities. It also helps to prevail in academic and intellectual development in society.

We human beings have the potentiality to do beyond good and create a world of peace. By peace, we can end all human beings suffering. At the next level, this peace can involve all live creatures such as animals used to entertain or feed human beings. It is exactly echoing the Albert Schweitzer’s saying, “Until man extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace.”

One recent example of conflict can be seen in the Ukrainian airplane crash that killed many Iranian, Ukrainian and Canadian passengers. Such heart-breaking tragedy is a result of human error and the result of recent political tension between Iran and the U.S. for the martyr of General Soleimani in Iraq. This a clear example of what can come as a result of conflict and tension in the world. Many people who are not politicians, or governors are the main victims of all war provoking countries like the US in the world. It is the part of the Iranian diplomat and foreign mister Muhammad Javad Zarif concerning such heartbreaking tragedy “our profound regrets, apologies, and condolences to our people, to families of all victims and to other affected nations. –

We at Radsamstone Company offer our sincere and deepest sympathies for family and friends of those tragically taken.
