„Mayen basaltic lava

contemporary witness from the depths of the Vulkan Eifel“

Mayen basaltic lava - a contemporary witness from the depths of the Vulkan EifelThe idea for making the book arose on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the MAYKO Natursteinwerke GmbH & Cie. KG. However, a mere commemorative publication was not the result but rather an abundantly illustrated, scientifically well-founded and nevertheless generally comprehensible synopsis of all geological, archaeological and historical aspects of extracting basaltic lava in the Mayen region.

The reading matter clearly shows that the modern extraction and processing of volcanic natural stones in the Vulkan Eifel is based on thousands of years of traditional craftsmanship to which the MAYKO Natursteinwerke GmbH & Cie. KG has contributed a great deal for the continuity of it in the region during the past 100 years and will continue to contribute in the future.
