As every quarry is unique, the types and degrees of variation that can be found in natural stone are wide-ranging. We work very closely with our quarries to monitor these variations, and to determine which will be present in the stones we select and source. Contrasts in coloration, unique veining patterns and differences in fossilization levels are the most common variations, determined by each individual stone’s density, mineral composition, and accumulations of organic matter.
Once our stones are sourced and fabricated, they are treated with a variety of finishing techniques that may highlight or deemphasize certain types of variation that are present. Ultimately, the process of transforming this raw material into a beautiful, usable product is both scientific and artistic, in equal measure.
Our natural stone showcases the stunning geological diversity of our planet.
