Diabase is a fascinating type of rock from north-east Skåne, exclusive and sought after across the world. So much more than just a normal piece of rock, it is a deep black, fine-grained form of granite that is extremely hard. For instance, diabase is often used for art, memorials and buildings such as the Ground Zero monument in New York and the Washington War Memorial. Originating in Skåne, Kullaro set up business ten years ago and the owners are pretty much self-taught in the art of designing and manufacturing. Their designs are made of rock excavated from quarries in Lönsboda, Duvhult, Gylsboda and Hägghult, later combined with other materials for extraordinary pieces of jewellery and furniture.
