Stones

We have a wide variety stones that you can choose. Granite, marble, quartzite, travertine, onyx, limestone and soapstone are just part of the assortment we have in stock.

GRANITE

Granite is a widely occurring group of intrusive, igneous rocks that form at great depth and pressure under continents. It is composed primarily of quartz, feldspar and mica. Granite gets its wonderful variety of colors and patterns from minerals that are melted into the liquid mass as it is formed.  With its deep iridescent colors, granite offers that elusive, one-of-a-kind beauty created only by nature. Granite comes in a variety of colors and stylish patterns, which make it into the most versatile and trendy of all stones.

Granite can be highly polished to expose all of its natural characteristics, honed for a matt finish or flame-textured for an aged, antique finish. These finishes are sometimes combined to produce interesting patterns and features.  Ideal for kitchen countertops and vanity tops .

MARBLE

Marble is a sedimentary rock, which consist of limestone that has undergone heat and pressure metamorphosis under temperatures in excess of 1800ºF. The texture of marble depends on the form, size and uniformity of grains. The element components of marble determine the color of the stone. Generally calcite and dolomite marbles are of pure white color. Variations of whiteness of pure marbles are due to the mixture of foreign substances. Marble is an elegant natural stone rich with beauty. A truly unique look and feel! Images of extravagance and wealth come to mind. It’s been used for centuries in palaces, temples, and for sculptures. It can be formal or casual. The surface of the stone can be polished or honed for a more formal look. Great for bathrooms, fireplaces, furniture tops

QUARTZITE

Quartzite is quartz-rich sandstone that has been metamorphosed. It is a very hard; solid stone and when polished has high gloss marble-like appearance. Among other characteristics Quartzite is known for its hardness and great durability, resistance to extreme temperatures, and immense beauty. While some quartzites are very dense and resistant to water absorption, others are very porous and require the application of heavy-duty sealer, to protect its surface against water absorption and staining.

TRAVERTINE

Travertine is a light-colored limestone. It is a calcium carbonate rock deposited around lime-rich spring sand lakes. When the water evaporates, it leaves behind layers of dissolved limestone and other minerals, giving it its banded appearance. Its natural pits and holes, made by bubbles in the hot springs where it was formed, lend it a distinctive character. The holes are normally filled with synthetic resins or cements for easier maintenance, and add to the stone’s unique character. Travertine is generally used for floors, walls and for outside as cladding and pavement.

ONYX

Onyx is perhaps one of nature’s most dazzling stones.  It is a sedimentary rock that is formed inside caves as stalactites and stalagmites. Color of its bands range from white to almost every color except for shades of purple or blue.  The most common varieties of onyx contain bands of white, tan and brown.  Onyx is a cryptocrystalline form of quartz.  It is this formation process together with the size and uniformity of these crystals that contribute to the translucent property of most varieties of onyx.  It is perhaps this translucent property that makes the decorative appeal of onyx unsurpassed by any other material.   Add the WOW factor to your project by “lighting it up” with an onyx counter top, floor or vessel bowl.

LIMESTONE

Limestone is a sedimentary rock that is formed at the bottom of lakes and seas, as organic matters settle to the bottom. As more and more layers build up over thousands and millions of years, adding more and more weight, the heat and pressure cause chemical reactions to take place to harden the sediments into solid stone is It consists mainly of calcium that was deposited by the remains of marine animals. Colors may range from creamy whites and yellows to browns and blacks that impart warmth and subtlety to any structure. Limestones are ideal for today’s more casual and comfortable environments. The soft beiges and tans are suitable for bathrooms, fireplaces, counters and floors, although they are appropriate for exterior applications as well. In locations that are susceptible to freezing temperatures, travertine is normally used for interior wall cladding and decoration only.

SOAPSTONE

Soapstone is quarried like Granite and Marble. It is a steatite stone and its primary components are magnetite, dolomite, chlorite, and talc. As talc in soapstone is soft to the touch, it gives the smooth feeling of rubbing a piece of dry soap. Thus the name was derived – “Soap” Stone. Mineral oil and some light penetrating sealers will bring out a dark richness to the stone’s natural color and also work as a protective sealing layer to the surface of the stone. Soapstone is perfect for achieving that warm “old fashioned”, “rustic”, “early American” looks. It’s also versatile enough so that it can be used with very modern designs.
