Natural Stone is not manufactured; it is a product of nature. Blocks are removed from the quarry, slabs are cut from these blocks, and the slabs are further fabricated into the final stone to be installed. Each block is different; each slab is different. Skillful blending or matching of the dimension stone blocks, veneer panels, tops, etc., results in a beautiful blending of nature's variety and man's design.
In contrast to the uniformity of materials produced by machine or assembly line, stone's naturally varied appearance has a wonderful character. "Uniformity of material," when applied to natural stone, is a term of relative value that needs to be understood when making a selection.
