What Hard Stones Are:
Hard stones are a technique of decorative arts consisting of the embedded by intarsia of marbles or semiprecious stones such as jade, quartz, agate, jasper, lapis lazuli, chalcedony, etc., forming a pictorial composition. Intarsia consists of embedding on a compact surface thin stone or marble tiles, cut and fitted forming diverse images or compositions, attached with tail or dough and subsequently polished.
This technique began in Rome in the sixteenth century and reached maturity in Florence, hence it is also called Florentine mosaic.
