Mylonite is a mineral that was formed more than three hundred million years ago due to the friction of the tectonic plates, and that, for the same reason, rose to the surface from the depths of the earth. The Temples of Humankind are built within this emerged layer of mylonite that was produced by the contact between the African plat and the Euro-Asian plate. In addition to being conducive of telluric energy, mylonite is a very resistant stone, as it is formed during the process of fragmentation and stratification of different minerals.
