Stone distributors are your doorway to bringing stone from around the world into your home. They import stone from over 100 countries and make them available for viewing in their comfort conditioned warehouse facilities. We encourage you to select and tag your slabs. When you view them keep the following issues in mind:
Love the entire slab! You should assume that we will use all areas of the slab when we layout your job so you should look at stone until you find one you love completely!
Touch it, don’t just look at it! Even polished finish slabs can have a ‘pebbly’ feel to them. This is inherent in certain stones that have pits. It is completely natural and is NOT something that can be ‘fixed’. You will have your hands on the stone for a long time so be sure you like how it feels too!
Learn, but don’t make subtle color decisions from photos on these websites. Depending on the quality of the photo and your computer display, the reality of these colors may be subtly or drastically different from the image. Most stone should be viewed in person before a final selection is made.
