5.Samples

Stone is a product of nature, and variations in colour and characteristics are the elements that let every installation be unique. No one sample can indicate all the possible permutations that may be present in a stone. All the tiles featured on the website have been selected from a typical range of each type, but it would not be possible to exhibit the full diversity. For large projects, it is highly recommended you ask for an array of samples.
