This month, as CUMAR celebrates the anniversary of opening its doors in Everett, the stone fabricator and importer is both honored and humbled to have served its customers for a quarter of a century. On October 17, CUMAR will celebrate this achievement at the company’s big Anniversary Party and looks forward to 25-plus more years of being a cut above.
Additionally, CUMAR is happy to announce that Paul Guitard has joined the company as the VP of operations. In this role, Guitard’s focus will be on supporting and managing the CUMAR infrastructure.

Featured Stone of the Month: Indonesian Coral
Indonesian fossil Coral is a natural stone formed from ancient corals, not to be mistaken for protected and endangered coral reef from the modern oceans of today. Of the varieties of fossilized corals found throughout the geologic record, exquisitely detailed specimens from the mountains of Indonesian are most unique and beautiful.
Coral, which has been growing in the ocean for almost 500 million years, thrive in warm shallow marine waters and over time are buried in sediments as the land surface shifts and the oceans rise and fall. For many years, ancient coral deposits have been mined for their high-quality calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium content which is used in health supplements.
Suitable for indoor use, the Indonesian Coral is part of CUMAR’s Precioustone Collection and is only available in a limited quantity. To schedule an appointment to view the custom stone please call 617-389-7818.
