Natural sandstone is mined from a deposit owned by Sedlecký Kaolin, a.s. in Mšené Lázně by Mšenské Pískovce, s.r.o. The mining is conducted using pressurised water directly in the sandstone deposit. The sandstone is subsequently processed with diamond saws or, for stonemasonry processing, by hand.
The Mšeno sandstone is a natural rock of a pure colour, appreciated for its decorative characteristics. It is used for sculpting, renovation of monuments, and garden and interior architecture (such as St. Vitus Cathedral, Charles Bridge, Libochovice Chateau, Prague Botanical Gardens etc).
