Elegant bookends made of natural stone

Aji Stone is a granite produced only in the northeastern part of Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, and can be found only here in the world.

It is characterized by its hardness and beauty. According to Mohs hardness, which expresses the hardness of a mineral, Aji Stone has a hardness of 7, equivalent to that of quartz (by the way, diamonds have a hardness of 10 and marble has a hardness of 4). The fine particles and dense bonding allow for fine processing. It also has the advantage of being hard to weather because it contains little moisture, which does not penetrate into the stone.

Because of this characteristic, high skill is required for processing, and there are skilled craftsmen in the production area who specialize in quarrying, cutting, polishing, molding, engraving letters, making lanterns, erection, transportation, and other production processes.

"Rock End" is bookends that take advantage of the natural beauty of stone. Made from one stone that has been split in half, the sides facing the books have been polished so as not to scratch surfaces or damage the books. These stones add an air of natural elegance to any room or study.
