Mathios Stone is a handmade reproduction of natural stone. Our artisans traveled around the world, through rural areas, rocky mountains, grotto, canyons and pebble beaches to handpick the most beautiful stones. Next, special molds were designed for every single stone in order to capture each texture to even the tiniest detail. Following this, each stone is handpainted depicting all colour nuances found in the colour palette of nature.
