Natural stone product categories and classifications such as granite, marble, travertine, limestone, quartzite, and onyx are based on generally accepted industry definitions. They do not necessarily reflect the geological composition of the material. In many cases, these materials are technically made of a mixture of geological stones. For example, many stones are commonly known as granites, but geologically, they are actually Charnockites, Polimitic Mataconglomerates, Schists, or other various rocks. In addition, many stones commonly referred to as marble in the industry are geologically considered limestone.

Due to the fact that all natural stone materials are products of nature, variations in characteristics such as color, shade and veining are to be expected, and photos provided are meant as an example only.

Due to the wide variation in monitor colors & printer quality, on-screen and printer color representations may vary from actual stone colors.
