    Is it possible to merge stones?

    Stoneworkers

    Hi there, I have a slightly odd request. Could I hire a stoneworker to have two stones melted and merged into one? One is owned by myself and the other by my husband and we would like to merge them ahead of our wedding and then keep it on the mantelpiece. Thank you very much.

    "Hi there,

    Yes, it is possible to merge stones, but it isn't standard procedure requiring dedicated machinery.

    If the stone was quartz, it could be thermoformed ( a process in which the resins are bonded together at high temperatures).
    If the stone is ceramic, you can google 'infinity stone invisible joint' to find relevant suppliers.
    Lastly, stones with intricate patterns like granite are the most challenging to merge with an 'invisible joint'.
    I hope it helps!"

    "Depending on what actual stone you have, stone takes a massive amount of heat to melt usually 1500 degrees, and then would have to have a mould that could hold something that hot .... which if made to order for size and shaping could prove to be very expensive"
