Marble, granite, travertine, limestone, onyx and slate are quarried products. Stones are a natural-honed or polished rock; not factory-made or fired. No two pieces are alike; there are inherent variances in all stone. These characteristics may include color and shade variations, geological flaws, irregular markings, voids, pitting, veins, fissures and lines of minor separations. However, these characteristics are part of the natural beauty of the stone and will not impair the function or wearing qualities of the material.
