These beautiful sinks are hand carved from basalt. Basalt is a fine grained, extrusive igneous rock formed from fast moving lava that rapidly cools. Basalt is chemically identical to formations such as gabbro, that form from slow moving lava being rapidly cooled. When many think of basalt, they think of the polygonal columns seen in places like Giant’s Causeway. This formation only occurs during a very slow cooling process. Therefore, most of our basalt sinks are from rapidly cooled basalt.
