Factors in Selecting quality stone products
Color for stone:
Stone is a natural material. The color of the raw material can not be changed even after they are polished. So, the color of surface is a very important standard to judge the quality of a stone product. The surface of good quality stone products shall be in uniform color and little color variation. The inferior stone products can not cover this 'defect' even after they are repair and re-polished.
Know the absorption rate:
Technically, more the absorption rate of a natural stone, the more prone the stone will be to staining and cracking. Natural Stone Sealers are used to prevent water absorption in stones with high absorption rates.
Beware of some common defects

Know the grade of natural stone:
If you are looking for highly resistance natural stone for your project, opt for higher grades. For instance, grade 3 or grade 4 stones are ideal for projects where you need very high resistance against scratching and chipping.
