Natural Stone and Natural Variation


Natural stone is a product of nature and no two pieces look exactly alike. The sample you received five months ago may not represent the current batch. Even two pieces of a stone from the same quarry that are cut from the same block and packaged in the same box can look completely different!

 

  • We never recommend making tile- or stone-related purchases based upon an image on a computer screen. 
  • Ask to see a sample of the current batch to get a better idea of what the stone currently looks like: it could be more gold, more red, have more or less veining, and generally look different than the last batch.
  • If you are worried about consistency, ask us to recommend natural stone options with relatively low variation.

 

If you want more control over the look and consistency of your product, consider using a stone-looking porcelain instead. These man made products have come leaps and bounds in the past 20 years in regards to realism and printing technology, and are far more color consistant than natural stone.

Frequently Asked Questions about Stone

Do I have to seal natural stone?

If a stone is porous and installed in any area where it could be exposed to spills or moisture, it needs to be sealed.

 

Exception: Non-porous stones, such as soapstone, do not need to be sealed. Granite, marble, travertine, slate, and most other stones sold in our store are porous and do require sealing.

 

Exception: If you're installing natural stone on the face of an indoor fireplace or some other dry, no-traffic area, then sealing is purely optional. Sealing won't hurt the stone at all, but it will provide an extra layer of protection just in case someone spills something on the surface.
