The Marble Institute of America, Inc. (MIA) recently announced the release of its 2005 Desktop Quarry Calendar, which showcases dramatic, full-color photographs of MIA member quarries on backgrounds of select marbles, granites and other natural stones from the featured quarries.

Twelve monthly pages are held in a clear plastic case that converts to a desktop frame measuring 4 3⁄4 x 5 1⁄2 inches, making the 2005 Desktop Quarry Calendar an attractive personal reference tool and an ideal gift. Each participating quarry's name, address, contact information and Web address appear on the back of the monthly pages.

“We're proud to help MIA members promote their quarries and their outstanding stone products through this handsome desktop calendar,” stated Garis F. Distelhorst, MIA Executive Vice President. “We are always looking for creative ways to increase exposure for our members, and we believe this calendar does just that. Our aim is to get the calendar onto the desks of architects, construction professionals and other stone consumers to serve as a daily reminder of the unparalleled beauty of real natural stone.”

Calendars can be purchased directly from MIA. For more information, visit its Web site at
