- A Few Facts About Natural Stone -

It is important to note that, because stone is a natural resource, it can vary slightly from tile to tile. Because of this, you’re not likely to have a perfectly smooth transition from one stone to the next. Here are some more facts about the most popular types of natural stone:
▉ Granite
This is one of the densest natural stones available, consisting of mica, feldspar and quartz. It is stain resistant and scratch resistant, and makes a great floor choice for kitchens and bathrooms.
▉ Marble
This is a limestone variation that contains patterned veining, making it a unique stone choice. Since it is more porous than granite, it is more easily stained and scratched and should be used in areas of lower traffic.
▉ Limestone
This subtle looking stone comes in either a honed or matte finish and is very porous. Because of this, it will require preventative maintenance from time to time. It should definitely be sealed for protection, as it is a very soft and porous stone.
▉ Travertine
This stone looks very unique thanks to the fill process required to make it. Normally, there are many holes running throughout the stone that are filled, honed, and finally polished to give it its unique look. It will also need maintenance from time to time because of its porousness.
▉ Slate
You get a rustic look with slate that continues to be a popular choice for flooring. There are a variety of shades and colorings that give earthy tones and warmth to any home. There can be vast differences between tiles, as colors range from reds and oranges to gold, purples, greens, blues, rusts and browns. You can even find black slate rock.
