As is the case with any natural stone material, there will be variations in color and markings in each individual natural stone.  These variations should not be regarded as defects.  They are characteristics of natural stone that give the material its uniqueness and dramatic beauty.  We encourage you to take the opportunity to personally have your client approve the natural stone lot at the fabrication facility HMKS Slab Yard that will be producing the countertop.  We also provide samples and color swatches in order to assist with your materials selection.  Please note that these samples offer a general representation of the overall color and markings of each product and are not meant as an exact replication of the actual product.

With polished granite and marble,
any or all of the following natural characteristics may be present:

Areas, especially in marble, that have been filled with a matching color epoxy that may compromise the integrity and strength of the materials.

Variations in veining, color, and movement that may be present in any natural materials.  Materials that are referred to as “swirl” granites exhibit more of these types of natural occurrences.

Fissures:  small visible lines on the surface of the polished or honed slab which rarely indicate or affect the structural integrity of the product.

Beauty marks:  natural mineral deposit concentrations that can be seen as intensified spots or lines of color, lack of color, or areas with compromised polishing ability.

Pitting:  “pock marks” of varying size on the surface of a slab which are a result of the tightness of the material grain and the material’s ability to accept a polished finish.

The presence of any of these characteristics adds to the uniqueness of your material, and in the majority of cases does not compromise the durability of your product.
