Import of stone to America

Dear Friends , Interesting report on the number of stone imports into the US in February year 2019; and comparing the same time in the year 2018, it is interesting for me that most of the world’s stones are exported to the US monthly. In this between

China with $ 2 million granite and $ 5 million marble, is one of the top exporters, then

Brazil with $ 18 million in granite and

Turkey with $ 14 million marble and

India with $ 10.5 million granite and marble and Italy with $ 10 million granite and marble

These are in a List of largest exporters.

Now pay attention to the number of countries exporting to the US in February:

Emirates- Argentina- Austria- Belgium- Brazil- Bulgaria- Canada- China- Denmark- Dominican- Ecuador- Egypt- Flanders- France- Germany- Greece- Hong Kong- India- Indonesia- Israel- Italy- Jordan- Korea- Lebanon- Mexico- Morocco- Namibia- Holland- Pakistan- Peru- Philippines- Poland- Portugal- Russia- Arabia- South Africa- Spain- Sri Lanka- Switzerland- Syria- Taiwan- Tunisia- Tunisia- Turkey- England- Vietnam- Zimbabwe

The report includes imports to the United States in the granite, marble, slate and other rocks, both in value in dollars and in tonnage.

In February of the 2019 year $ 102 million and this month in the Year 2018, it was $ 118.5 million, down 14 percent from a year earlier.
