Are there analogs for replacing a natural stone?

The question that causes to think not only craftsmen, but also ordinary people who plan to repair or build. Today, for the replacement of natural stone, there are already analogues whose appearance, almost does not differ from the natural. The choice will affect both the price and the properties of the stone, it will be artificial or genuine to choose for you.

We propose to arrange a small information about the subject of their comparison. If you needed a facing stone for external or internal work, its main task is to protect against cold, water and strengthening walls or certain structures. We recommend before choosing a cheap and standard analogue, or more expensive and more beautiful, but still artificial, pay attention to the lifetime and composition of the base (concrete raw materials with specific fixers and dyes). Definitely there will be various groups of chemical compounds, which quickly collapse and react with the environment. Very soon there will be cracks, splinters, and also the color will "grind" from moisture and ultraviolet light.

And now consider the real stone, which is created naturally and has resistance to atmospheric factors. In the process of facing the foundation with a "natural stone" of igneous origin, you will receive not only a powerful tool for the improvement of your home, but also unique color patterns. Moreover, the price for it is not so high in comparison with artificial, but the big difference in the term of service - a priceless gift from nature.

If we consider the culture of a particular society in a particular era, then the first thing we pay attention to is a system of basic moral, aesthetic, political, and primitive values, that is, mentality. In the history of the formation of cultures there are a number of features, namely the accumulation of values horizontally and vertically.


The first direction (vertical) characterizes the transfer of culture and traditions from one generation to another. Hence all common rules of norms and behavior, as in everyday life, and on holidays, for example, ceremonial actions proceed. The second direction (horizontal) is an art and creative achievements. We are talking about material objects, through which we are sent messages from the past about those or other mood and historical events.


When the horizontal and vertical lines are "comrades," it immediately becomes noticeable, because such a society has a clear and conscious system of culture, which is a symbol of one or another nationality. Consider this on an example of architecture. Each of the prominent architects of his time built a lot of buildings, thus expressing his passion for creating a new one. Therefore, all historic buildings have a certain amount of power and energy. Accordingly, the fortresses were built in relation to the nature of the country's military strategy. Similarly, structures of public purpose were designed according to religious and spiritual beliefs.


When choosing a building stone, architects relied on knowledge of predecessors, but did not do without their own new experiments. Materials over time were subjected to various influences, to determine the final characteristics, which in the future will affect the strength and aesthetics. Rose stones like pebbles and sandstones were appropriate in the construction of baths, swimming pools, gardens, etc., precisely because of their fearlessness in front of the water. But stone of rocks has always been used for masonry and fortification, because of its resistance to temperature fluctuations and strong winds.


It can be argued that without the experience of past generations there would be no current technologies and opportunities for their improvement. Moreover, by multiplying the culture of your people, you not only leave your own trace in history, but perhaps you can help someone to create something extraordinary!

The architecture of Ukraine have a lot of interesting monuments, we are proud of and they were the epicenter of historical events. Their design and construction in all corners of the country was different, however, there is something that unites them - it is a stone. It is the stone that forms the basis, which preserved the great heritage of the people. This natural material was the first fossil, which is still indifferent to all atmospheric influences. What to say, even during a fire, the stone remains almost intact. Moreover, most buildings have not been destroyed, neither the war nor other political upheavals.


You can distinguish certain architectural styles that have created a peculiar atmosphere. All historical buildings of our region - are examples of neoclassicism, baroque, neo-Gothic, modern, harmoniously passed the sacred purpose of memorials. The art of creating for the descendants is an indicator of the level of culture and the desire to leave behind an indelible trace. In addition, the architecture itself of buildings with its underground passages reflects all the creativity and eccentricity of the Ukrainian people.


Take for example the Khotyn Fortress, which has long attracted the attention of researchers, travelers and simple connoisseurs of antiquity. Designing a fortress has a lot of secrets and tricks that have been borrowed from other countries and modified. Starting from the choice of a stone taking into account the climate and ending with the peculiarities of the geography of the area.


In addition to light moments, the fortress has repeatedly experienced periods of decline and oblivion. About it, it only strengthened the position of the memorial, because after experiencing significant events Khotin and now has a significance for Ukraine and world history. Scientists have found that the name of the city Khotin - means "desired". During the Middle Ages, Hotin was known to Europe for its markets and fairs, which sold interesting household items and delicious food. It should also be added that the city has always played a strategically important role in international transit trade. While on the border of various states, Khotyn often passed from hand to hand, and this only contributed to the accumulation and increase of cultural heritage.


And it should be added that in 2007 the State Historical and Architectural Reserve "Khotyn fortress" becomes the Nominee of the All-Ukrainian Action "Seven Wonders of Ukraine". And in 2011, Khotin fortress became the winner of the All-Ukrainian action "Seven Wonders of Ukraine in the nomination: "castles, forts, palaces".

Natural stone - the first useful minerals, which began to use our ancestors, for example:
- silicium knives and sharpened tips on the spears;
- material for housing construction;
- mineral to improve the condition of plants.
It can be argued that stone is the first material with which there was a successful dialogue between man and nature, and in that time, long-lived and durable tools were already valued. The fire was captured by the strikes of the silicon halves, and the first improvised cuisine was a flattened basalt, on which they further fried the plundered prey.

Times have passed and people have expanded useage limits of the stone: they built fortresses, bridges, houses - which even the present generation is proud of. And for the person it was important to know that it would leave its imprint in history. In different times there was a different attitude to the preservation of the historical heritage, however, today cultural property in the form of architecture of different times are invaluable memorials.

There are a number of buildings to which the rules of the UNESCO Convention apply. It is a question of timely restoration and a prohibition to replace windows on metal-plastic, because the reason is to reduce the significance of the construction. Stone as a natural material, has its own unique texture, which has the ability to absorb energy. He, we can say, preserves those specific vibrations from the air and thus reflects the atmosphere of a certain mood. That's why it's so nice to walk around the streets of historic areas of European cities, especially in Paris or Verona. Remember a few romantic works of the Renaissance period, which there are sensual love moments ... And that's all thanks to the support and enhancement of the cultural heritage of the world.

An interesting phrase is "energy of stone", and since we deal with it, it's time to define it.

Stone remembers the birth of life on earth hundreds of millions of years ago, it has endured many different atmospheric factors. Sometimes we encounter the remnants of stone processing or reminders of that time. The formation was influenced by pressure, and water, and air, and glaciers, with mobile tectonic plates and the displacement of lava, magma with other breeds. Which squeezed and mixed the trees, animals, soil and as a result obtained a lot of minerals and stones.

These factors contributed to the completion the process of decay substances, in other words - the stone is the ultimate form of natural. And this means that it preserved the primordial silence and purity of the flora and fauna of that period. And when choosing a stone for a garden or a home, we advise you to rely on his own feelings that he passes on. After all, your home comfort depends on the materials from which it is composed.

In such institutions, visitors are more likely to experience positive emotions, and natural objects of the interior accumulate good energy, which affects the overall atmosphere in the room. The theme of eco-style is not just so in fashion. This was facilitated by the intensive urbanization of towns in the metropolis, which is very tired of human consciousness and real holidays can only be obtained by contacting nature. We advise you to choose more often in parks and squares, and at home to surround yourself with the gifts of our green planet.

For example, we will take the construction of bridges. If you take a closer look at them, you can see an uncomplicated scheme of masonry of stone, where everyone is in his place. And this is not uncommon, because in those days the foundation of all buildings had to be tough in order to stop during the raids not only the infantry, but perhaps the charges of the catapult.

Architects during the construction of bridges rationally approached the load and certain ergonomics. This work is not only with the foundation, it also takes into account the influence of water, vegetation, animals. We made a special solution (cement) which interacted with some rocks of the stone and permanently fastened the structure.

The stone blocks were of different shapes, about it, it was only in favor. Each block was invested under a special algorithm so that they support each other and as if they were locked into the grooves.
