Natural stone instead of artificial stone

Natural stone instead of artificial stone

For thousands of years, people have ground grain with natural stones – today, electric household mills with natural stones are a rarity!
Granite is quarried in nature – the grinding stones are without binding agents – pure nature!
In more than 40 years, we have not become aware of any breakage of the stones or breakage of stone particles.

Only grinders with artificial grinding stones made of corundum ceramic are usually available on the market.
These consist mainly of aluminum oxide and silicon dioxide.

It is therefore obvious why there is little information available on natural stone grinders.
In some cases, deliberately false information is also circulating. One such example is that natural stone becomes smooth after just a few years and has to be reground at great expense.
We can prove that natural stones grind for decades without any processing!

For this reason, we also guarantee that we will regrind all natural stone free of charge within 12 years if necessary. Is there a better guarantee?
We also guarantee a service life of 24 years for the grinding stones! *
We cannot guarantee that we will regrind corundum stones or replace broken corundum ceramic stones free of charge.

Basically, there are only either natural or artificially produced grinding stones. You will often find the term “natural stone mix”. You could be forgiven for thinking that this is a mixture of natural and man-made stones. However, this is not the case. There is no naturally grown corundum that is used to produce the so-called corundum ceramic grinding stones. These are therefore exclusively artificially produced grinding stones.

Artificial millstones not only have the advantage that they are cheaper to produce. No manual processing is necessary (except in the case of custom-made products). Furthermore, installation in the mill is considerably less time-consuming than is the case with natural stone.

We would like to make you aware of the positive properties of natural stone by publishing letters on this website in which our customers share their experiences and opinions with us.

However, there are no scientific expert opinions on many of our customers’ experiences that would prove the general validity of these experiences. There is simply no scientifically verifiable evidence of customer experience,

  • according to which the baking behavior of natural stone-ground flour is different from that of artificial grinding stones,
  • the natural stone powder behaves differently in terms of energy,
  • how abrasion from artificial stone or natural stone behaves in the body and how allergy sufferers, for example, react to abrasion,
  • that our natural granite stone is extremely durable and is more resistant to breakage than the corundum-ceramic grinding stones we used in the past, even in the event of the grinding of small stones in the ground material

However, we always receive interesting information from our customers about the energetic behavior, the spectral colors of natural stone powder and much more.
We receive praise from kinesiologists and alternative circles who test the quality of products using the means and methods available to them. Experienced bakers, award-winning chefs and enthusiastic housewives also tell us about the baking properties of natural stone-ground flour, which we are very pleased about.

We would be delighted if you would take the time to read some of the opinions of our “Millers with Salzburg natural stone mills”.
Think about it: what were many of the world’s most monumental buildings made of? Made of granite!

Grinding with natural stone … a good feeling!
