    Right, the natural stones are coming in a wide variety of colours and the criterion is totally depending upon the PURPOSE that you have in your mind…the natural stone colour can make your space warm & cosy or formal. The colour of natural stone can make your space seem bigger or smaller. Here are some points that you should keep in your mind while selecting the stone colour. Always consider that, are you going to use the stone for indoor or outdoor! Consider the color of the stone: The darker natural granites like black galaxy, absolute black, black pearl can make your area even more smaller whereas lighter colours like colonial white, Alaska white granite can make your smaller area look like bigger and spacious. If you wish to use the natural stones for commercial purpose where the foot fall is more then you should choose the granite, that is one of the best options for high-rise buildings, offices, shopping plazas and other high traffic areas. If you have an easy installation of natural stone in your mind, then you can choose to lay the French pattern options. If you wish to highlight an architectural feature of any area, then you should choose the granite or marbles that are available with dramatic wild patterns. If you wish to install stone for Indoor then, try to match the granite with your cabinets, furniture, and wall colours. If you wish to install stone for outdoor then, consider the purpose, weather, ease of maintenance & lighting of the surroundings. We suggest you to bring the stone sample at home & compare the color against the cabinets and walls and other surroundings.

  • What is the difference between a quartzite slab and engineered quartz slab?
    Quartzite is a natural stone slab like marble or granite, our fantasy brown quartzite is an example to understand. These stones are often as hard as or harder than granites and are more resistant to etching than marbles. Engineered quartz slabs, on the other hand, are an engineered material made up of ground quartz grains held together by various resins. Quartz slabs are manmade / engineered to be hard, nonporous, and etch resistant. We are the top exporter, manufacturer & producers of engineered quartz slabs from India.
  • What is Quartzite? How does it compare to granite or quartz?
    Please never confused with quartz, Quartzite is 100% natural and a quarried stone. It is a metamorphic rock made almost entirely of earth’s mineral quartz. Quartzite is made up of sand grains which over time become compressed together to form sandstone. When the sandstone gets buried deeply underneath layers of rocks, it gets hotter and more compressed. With enough heat and pressure, the sand grains lose their original shape and fuse together, forming a dense and durable rock. Quartzite is usually available in white or light-coloured because quartz sand is light colored. In some cases, it can be denser than granite. Quartzite has resistant to acids, staining, and scratching, much like a granite. Since this stone is natural, it should be sealed properly. We are the top exporter, manufacturer & producers of quartzite slabs from India.
  • What is Soapstone?
    Soapstone is a metamorphic rock composed mainly of the mineral talc, along with stronger additives that add to its durability. Soapstone mainly found in those areas where tectonic plates are sub ducted, changing rocks by pressure and heat creating a very dense and non-porous stone. This stone is relatively soft, and can feel “soapy” when we touch it. Although it is soft, its high density allows this stone to hold up well in highly used areas such as kitchens. Soapstone is not sensitive to heat or acids and does not need sealers applied to keep from staining. Because it does scratch easily, oiling the tops with mineral oil can soften the look of scratches. Having an impenetrable surface, soapstone will not stain. Soapstone will naturally darken (oxidize) over time. Oiling your tops will also create darkening in colour. We are the top exporter, manufacturer & producers of soapstone slabs from India.
  • What is Sandstone?
    Sandstone is actually a sedimentary rock containing tiny sand-sized particles and organic substances. Sandstone composed of different types of minerals, which are widely used in tons of applications. Due to the impurities in minerals, sandstone can be of different colors. Mostly, sandstone found in white, black, grey, pink, tan, yellow, and red. All types of sandstones contain the same minerals. Sandstone is the second most commonly found sedimentary rock on earth. The only disadvantage of sandstone is its slightly less weather resistance, there is a good chance the sandstone will face wear and tear. The reason why builders consider sandstone as the best fit for construction requirements is its flexibility. Sandstone is quite smooth for carving purposes. Sandstone is not slippery, but if the sandstone is polished and fine honed it can be slippery to a degree depending on many factors. This means you cannot install fine honed sandstone tiles near the swimming pool, in the kitchen, bathroom, and other wet areas. Sandstone uses and applications: Sandstone mostly used around the swimming pools, outdoor pavers, garden sitting areas, patio pavers, driveway pavers, homes, buildings, parks, pathways, benches, walls, statues, candle holders, vases, tile, fireplaces, pillars, tables, garden balls, shelves, coasters, stepping stones and more. The most beautiful & popular color is yellow sandstone, yellow sandstone is used in all kinds of decoration statue, like sandstone fountains, sandstone fireplaces, stone bathtub & sandstone planters etc. Around 90% production of Indian sandstone originates from Rajasthan only.

  • What is Slate?
    Natural slate is a metamorphic rock of sedimentary origin, created by the alteration of shale or mudstone by low-grade regional metamorphism, found mainly in the northern province of Rajasthan in India. Slate forms in various colors including red, blue-gray, green, black, and yellowish-brown. Composition of natural slate: Slate stone is mainly composed of minerals such as quartz, illite and muscovite, combined with pyrite, biotite and hematite.

  • What are DO’S and DON’TS for stone?
    DO’S DO dust surfaces frequently with a soft, clean cloth. DO “blot” up spills immediately, before they penetrate the surface. DO clean surfaces with a few drops of pH balanced dishwashing liquid and warm water. Rinse after washing with the soap solution and dry completely with a soft, clean cloth to avoid streaks. (Too much soap may also leave a film and cause streaks) DO wipe clean any countertops that come into contact with cooking oil. While stains are rare, they are caused most frequently by cooking oil. DO remove a stain on granite, with a mixture (paste) of one cup of flour, 1-2 tablespoons of pH balanced dishwashing liquid (or hydrogen peroxide for oil based stains) with water to make a fairly thick paste (just so it doesn’t run), like peanut butter. If it’s too thick it will take a long time to dry. Clean the stained area with distilled water and pH dishwashing liquid. Remember to “blot” rather than wipe. Then rinse, but don’t dry. Apply the paste to the stained area with a plastic spatula, overlapping the stain by at least 1/4” and avoiding air pockets. Cover the paste with plastic wrap and tape around the edges of the plastic using painters tape (don’t use regular masking tape, it’s too sticky). Let it sit for 24 hours or until thoroughly dry. Remove the plastic cover and check to see if the paste has dried. If it has not, allow it to sit uncovered until thoroughly dry. Once it is dry, remove the paste by scraping with a wooden /plastic spatula, or debit card, and rinse the area with distilled water and dry with a soft cloth. Examine the stain. If it still remains, but is somewhat lighter, re-process up to five more times. DO scrape off a hard substance stuck to the surface, and lime build up, by gently scraping with a hard and thin object like a debit card or new single sided razor blade. DON’TS DO NOT leave acidic liquids (vinegar, lemon juice, orange juice, lime juice, soft drinks and wine) on its surface for long, as they can etch the surface and dull the finish. Polished granite counter-tops are rather delicate and must be treated with more care. DO NOT use cleaners that contain bleach, ammonia, acid or alkaline such as bathroom cleaners, grout cleaners, abrasive cleaners (liquid or powder), lime removers, or tub and tile cleaners. DO NOT use scouring powders or creams; these products contain abrasives that may scratch the surface. DO NOT store bottles of cooking oil directly on your granite counter top. DO NOT store metal pots and pans on your countertops, as rust can and will stain the granite. The sealer is not a waterproofing agent. If your granite darkens when it is wet do not be alarmed. It will return to its original color when the water evaporates. DO NOT slide appliances, utensils or pots and pans on the surface of the granite, as they may scratch the polished surface. DO NOT apply a stone sealer that will not penetrate granite, as these harsh solvents are hard to remove and may need to be removed professionally.
  • What is the importance of stone slabs’ thickness?
    The thickness of the granite marble slab is directly proportional to the strength and durability of the stone. The required standard in the industry globally is 2 cm with a minimum of 1.8 cm for the processed slab. Thicker slabs cost slightly more, but are easier to handle, easier to transport and easier to install thus resulting in minimum wastage of the product and a longer life.
