Summary

The basic characteristic of industrial rocks, petrurugical raw materials, glass and ceramics, cement and enamels, slugs and ashses – phase composition, physical and mechanical properties. Natural buildings materials – crushed stone, stone for rough and fine stone technology. Actual principles of classification with orientation on relationship between petrographical analysis and physical-mechanical properties.
