Architect’s Stone Selector Helper (ASSH)

This is a listing of large stone photo caches on the internet.  ASSH will allow an architect to start a preliminary winnowing out of desired stones by color and appearance, depending on the usability of the computer file photos/suitability of photos permitting (Antolini is in Flash).  Photos and samples of the most likely stones can then be obtained.  A good source of such photos and accompanying technical data is the Marble Institute of America's Natural Stone Gallery, which covers 480 stones of all kinds (including granite, limestone, slate, and sandstone).  ASSH will continue to be expanded and elaborated in future issues.  The reader should also examine the ASTM C1528 Standard Guide for Selection of Dimension Stone for Exterior Use
