Gabbro – absolutely black Ukrainian stone

The most common decorative stone in terms of occurrence and the presence of active quarries, of course, is gabbro. Absolutely all gabbro quarries are located in the Zhytomyr region of Ukraine. More than 20 operating enterprises for the extraction of stone operate at the Bukinsky deposit, which is located near the village of Buki, Irshansky district. Also, this stone lies in other areas: Korostyshevsky, Volodarsky, Chernyakhovsky. Very often, the gabbro itself is named after the place or settlement near which it is mined. You can often hear from stone workers: “local gabbro”. This is a stone that is mined from a quarry right in Korostyshev itself. Accordingly, for the residents of Korostyshev it is local. There is also Volodarsky, Kamennobrodsky, Golovinsky gabbro, in addition Shadura – a quarry near the village of the same name. It is very important to be able to select raw materials for a certain type of product. For example, large slabs for gabbro countertops cannot be made from paving blocks – they will be cracked. And vice versa, if paving stones are made from large blocks – for polished products, then the price of such paving stones will be sky-high.
