Thirstystone sandstone is quarried using the most environmentally conscious methods to extract huge sandstone boulders that are crafted into Thirstystone coasters.
The sandstone boulders are core drilled using a large bit that extracts approximately 120 round stone cores from each boulder. Every usable portion of the boulder is utilized, leaving the original stone resembling a honeycomb. Any leftover stone is crushed and sent to landfills to help them manage their waste. The sandstone cores are sliced into disks and sent to the Sanding and Set Making departments where the edges are sanded smooth and the stones are sorted into matching sets.
"No two sets of coasters are exactly alike!"
The coasters are transported to Thirstystone’s production facility in Texas where some are made into sets, letting the beauty of the natural stone speak for itself, while others are printed with the best full color artwork available today, using a proprietary printing technology developed by Thirstystone. This unique process allows Thirstystone to recreate even the most detailed works of art while still preserving the absorbency of the natural stone.
