Dimension stones are extracted in a highly selective manner, using time-consuming and expensive methods for freeing the blocks from the surrounding rock.All natural stone used for structural support, curtain walls, veneer, floor tile, roofing, or strictly ornamental purposes is called building stone, and building stone that has been cut and finished for predetermined uses in building construction and monument known as Dimension stone. The characteristics required of good dimension stone are uniformity of texture and color, freedom from flaws, suitable for polishing, carving and resistance to weathering.

Many quarry stones such as marble, granite, limestone, and sandstone are cut into larger slabs and removed from the quarry. The surfaces are polished and finished with varying degrees of sheen or luster. Polished slabs are often cut into tiles or countertops and installed in many kinds of residential and commercial properties.
