Stones play a vital role in Zimbabwe construction industry. First of all they have been used since the beginning of time for several purposes. In ancient days they used to make cutting tools, weapons and shelter from stones. Furthermore sparks from striking a stone with another stone was also a way of putting fire on.
In addition almost every sort of work needed them to be in use, even bathing. Since generations grew associated with the non stop usage of stone, people started focusing on building great walls using them. Walls like the Great Zimbabwe were also made from stone.
New generations come with new ideas and as a result people started manufacturing bricks from clay and using stone for foundation. They were first crushed using various methods like burning and pouring water until they crack. Some stone cracked due to weathering.
