Product-Material: Granite, Marble, Travertine, Onyx and Soapstone
Granite is considered to be one of the oldest, most durable and most respected of building materials.
Most commonly used for kitchen countertops (mainly because of the heat resistance and non-scratch surface). It also is resistant to bacteria. In addition, it is difficult to stain. Granite is available in a variety of colors. With its strength and abundance of colors, it is the ideal product for kitchen countertops, table tops and floors.
Marble is a metamorphic limestone. Most marble is large grained and comes in various colors and patterns. It gets its characteristics from the high pressure and heating process of the limestone overtime. The calcite material within the limestone forms large crystals, which becomes marble.
Travertine is a popular material which is similar to marble and granite. It is produced like granite, in the ground from years of pressure and heat. There is a large selection of designs, colors and shades which are formed naturally over time.
Onyx is a natural stone and is considered to be somewhat semi precious. Onyx is known as a banded variety of marble or calcium carbonate. It mostly comes from Mexico and can be found in colors ranging from white to deep black. Onyx has a translucent appearance so it can be used creatively with backlighting for some unusual effects. It has a long history of being used for jewelry. Onyx has been an increasingly popular selection for kitchen countertops and backsplashes.
Soapstone is a soft metamorphic rock composed mostly of the mineral talc. Soapstone forms through the alteration of ferromagnesian silicate minerals during metamorphism. Soapstone is found in two basic varieties, "Artistic" and "Architectural". Architectural soapstone contains lower percentages of talc and it is used for sinks, countertops, floors as well as other architectural applications."
