There is no other material available today like AuroraStone. AuroraSurfaces reclaims taconite tailings from Northern Minnesota, and upcycles them – which means creating an all new, valued–added material. Every step of the AuroraSurfaces upcycling process enhances AuroraStone and makes it more precious and beautiful. First, an exclusive high temperature plasma heating technology is used to melt the taconite tailings. Artistically rendered highlights and textures become apparent after the melt is poured into handcrafted and customized forms. Not only is AuroraStone unlike other materials, but each casting of AuroraStone is utterly unique and distinctive. It truly stands alone—inspiring new uses and designs on a daily basis.
