    One of the most sought after accents in commercial and custom home building today is hand-carved Mexican cantera stone. Beginning in the late 17th century, Spanish stone masons, migrating to the new world, discovered cantera as an ideal stone suitable for Mediterranean architecture. Mexican cathedrals, missions and government buildings, constructed from cantera more than 400 years ago, continue to serve present day and future generations. Hand-carved cantera is the hallmark of important Mexican structures.

    Cantera comes in varying colors, shades and densities. Being a handcrafted construction material, cantera is a high-end application. Commercial and custom home architects throughout the southwestern United States demand its quality and the subdued earthy hues and texture ideal for Italian Mediterranean architectural applications.
