Meteorites
5. Meteorites
 
Journeying back in time to the edge of a 50,000 year old crater large enough to accommodate San Francisco's downtown, we see what a strike from outer space can do. Meteorites, meteor showers and shooting stars hold a special fascination over us. They are like witnesses from another world. There are a cadre of meteorite hunters reaching for the stars, and thousands of dollars a "stone."
Marble
4. Marble
 
Marble, the work of masters. To mine marble, you must move mountains, literally. The largest mountains in the world are home to the huge Indian quarries that produce truck load after truck load of noble Makrana marble. Its perfection and endurance are epitomized in one of the eight architectural wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal.
Granite
3. Granite
 
Our journey begins in Brittany, France. The Chateau de K
Basalt
2. Basalt
 
Hawaii is a state in motion, formed by magma spewing volcanoes that turn into basalt. It is the only rock that you will see in solid and liquid form. The native population of Hawaii considers 1,200 degree hot lava, which buries everything in its path, not as an instrument of destruction- but of creation. When you are a homeowner in the path of a lava flow that perspective is difficult to remember.
Sandstone
1. Sandstone
 
Some of the most incredible landscapes in the world are hewn from sandstone. Take a 3.700 miles journey zig zagging through the unspoiled wilderness of the American West. Witness Slot Canyon, Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, and the granddaddy of them all, the Grand Canyon. Plus you'll see how the ancients dwelled in the pueblos.
