- Rapporter 
The investigation and inventory of natural stone in Ethiopia has been a subject within the Ethionor Mineral Resource Program, a cooperation between the geological surveys of Ethiopia (GSE) and Norway (NGU). In this report, a selection of Ethiopian natural stone deposits are presented, varying from Precambrian marbles and granites to Tertiary and Quaternary volcanic rocks. Some of the deposits are already subject to exploitation as natural stone, others are in the early stages or industrial developments or will possibly be in the future. Furthermore, some of the rocks described have potential for introduction to the international market, while others will also in the future be used only domestically.
