Basalt is a volcanic (igneous) stone that has been used in architecture for centuries and is thought to be one of the main components of oceanic crust. The fissures and small holes in the surface are evidence of the earth's natural gasses flowing through and escaping from the stone. Basalt's are rich in magnesium, feldspar, pyroxene and iron, with hints of olivine and amphibole; all of which are siliceous materials similar to those in a granite. It is also a porous material with naturally-occurring holes that may remain unfilled or be factory-filled with resin or cement.
