Natural stones are great picks for those who are renovating their homes because of the variety of patterns, shades and durability that they provide. Looking at slab collection, you know that they are quarried before shipping to various manufacturers with blocks that are cut carefully into level sheets. After completing the carving and treating process, they are then shipped for home or business installation.
