Pebbel Stone


Pebble stones are found in nature; They come in large and small size of stones, larger than 2mm in diameter, smaller than 70cm in diameter, which are generally in the form of a rounded (oval) or flat, which have been shattered as a result of water abrasion in the waters of the lakes of the sea, lakes. The large pebbles are called “rubble” and the relatively small ones are called “sprinkles”.

Natural pebbles found by the sea and the lake are usually found in flat forms. The flat shape forms as the waves propagate and retract. Pebbles stones that are found in stream sizes are generally in round shapes. The reason for this is that the streams rotate and drag the stone particles with the propulsion.

The natural mass formed as a result of sand and gravel joining with pressure and hardening over time is called “conglomerate”. Conglomerates are composed of rolled, pebble or rock blocks without angular surfaces, siliceous, limestone materials combined with iron oxide and naturally cemented. It is seen that it was used extensively in the structures such as columns in order to be robust in Antiquity.

Natural pebbles also provide information about the past climate of the region in which they are located. Especially the layers with large stones in the river bed give an idea about the time period of raining in the past, hence the flow of the stream is high, and the presence of thin gravel and sand-weighted layers, in the past, that the flow rate was relatively low in the past.

The size of the pebble obtained naturally and passed through sieving is determined according to their diameters ranging from 2 to 70 mm. Pieces of pebbles smaller than 2 mm are called “Sandstone”. Sandstone is a sedimentary stone group composed of quartz, feldspar and mica, with small crumbs separated from older rocks. It contains iron oxide or clay minerals, calcite and silicate minerals.

Its diameter is between 2 and 70 mm and it is called coarse grained sedimentary stones consisting of fine-grained matrix such as sand or clay, and generally cemented round to semi-angular crumbs. It is formed by combining large and small pieces of stone with a natural binder. It occurs as a result of pebble sandstone sticking with silica, lime or iron oxide. Those adhered with silica are very durable. Coarse-grained ones are called conglomerates, and fine-grained ones are called sandy shale. Since shales are fine grained, they pass water hard.

Pebbles are classified as “fine gravel”, “coarse gravel”, “very coarse gravel” according to their size. According to the degree of processing, it is classified as “fine round gravel”, “rounder gravel”, “flat gravel”. Pebble stone according to its types and colors is generally used in the following areas: As the basic filling material in construction; as the main filling material to prevent the ground from collapsing on highways, tracks; It is frequently used for decoration purposes in gardens and parks.

Concrete and asphalt material are avoided in gardens and parks. For this purpose, many colored pebbles have been used recently in walking areas. Since pebbles prevent grass from growing, they also reduce maintenance costs. One of the usage areas of pebble stones is as decoration material both for indoors and outdoors. Pebbles used in different colors for this purpose are called dolamite. There are also pebbles that rarely absorb light during the day and shine in the dark at night, which are mostly used as marking and decoration materials for roadsides in the garden paths of luxury buildings.
