Here are some tips for natural stone selection

1. Observe the surface structure. Quality stones are consistent in texture and dense or compact in structure, Check the edges are defective or not.

2. Draw or measure the size in case it will effect the joining.

3. Knock the stone and listen to the sound. Generally speaking, those in high quality and dense structure will make a light sound.

4. Samples may differ from the actural stone, especially when you are selecting those that vary widely in appearance.

However, because the stone is natural, it always has tiny pits between different mineral crystals. It also contains natural fissures that may appear to be cracks, but they are not structural defects and will not impair the function or durability of the material. They occur naturally and are considered to be part of the beauty of stone.
