Cutting Stones

This week we went on an excursion to Jogra Stone Industries and their quarry near Sarpsborg to see how materials of natural stone is being extracted and prepared for use. 

The stone quarry

We were shown the entire process, from the extraction at the quarry to the production, treatment and storage of materials on their production site.

At this site they were also storing the memorial sculptures being made to honor the victims of the Utøya tragedy last year.
