What Is Earth Anatomy?

Earth Anatomy’s thin stone veneers are natural stone, the same that’s been used for thousand of years of building for its beauty and ruggedness. Through our veneer creation processes, new qualities of raw stone are revealed making it lightweight, flexible, and even translucent in some cases.

Our Story

Earth Anatomy outfits the design community with unique building and surface finishing materials with our unique natural thin stone veneers.

Earth Anatomy—a division of Grizzly Partners—was founded in June, 2008. Today Earth Anatomy has grown from a dream shared by a Navy “Doc” and Marine into a global company that delivers innovative, sustainable building products to the market.

Our company is devoted to helping architects, builders, product designers, OEM manufacturers, exhibit display makers, and a host of other industries use natural thin stone veneers for whatever their project entails. In addition to our products, we have a dedicated millwork facility to provide custom design and ensure installation is properly and easily executed.

Earth Anatomy is an American company, based in greater Cleveland. We combine American ingenuity and craftsmanship with a global supply chain to help our customers explore the full possibilities of our product line.
