The state of the Rajasthan in India is the biggest producer of dimensional stone e.g. marble, granite, slates, sand stone and limestone widely known as Kota Stones. Kotah stone is being used extensively as excellent flooring stone being very tough, compact and can take mirror polish. Kota Limestones are naturally riven flooring stone. Mining for Kotah Stone has started some 70 years back with a production of few thousand square feet. It has multiplied many times over these years. Present level of production is 250 million Sq.ft. Mining of Kotah Stone over the years has been all manual except removal of over burden. The excavation of over burden 12-15mm thick had been mechanized since 1983 only. After removal of overburden, the layers yielding Kotah Stone have been separated by chiesel and crow-bar followed by sizing and splitting the layer along natural cleavage to give Kotah Stone Slab/Tile ready to use. The mining has been very selective. Only those layers which could be splitted upto a maximum of 3" thickness and could be cut to size manually by chiesel and hammer have been mined. The rest have been thrown as waste.
Kota Stone (Lime Stone) is known for its wide applications due to its durability and beautiful appearance. Kota stones unique properties make it an ideal stone for builders.
