stone Is very sensitive senslUveto to the action

Marble and Granite Grane Quarrying
The principal methods of pfmarble marble ex ¬
traction that modern exper exper experience ience and
practise have evolved are those of saw
lug and channeling The former sys ¬
tem Is used largely In France Italy
and Belgium and almost exclusively excluslvol
on the Marmor properties In Greece
The saw itself is I an endless steel s teel rope
of three strands looosely lo osely twisted to to ¬
gether This cutter Is passed round a
drivingwheel and carried on guiding
pulleys from a power house at a high
speed The wire saw enables stone sto rie
not onjy ony to be cut from the rock bed
but sawn on the spot into blocks of
a handy size for export
