Product categories and classifications such as Granite, Marble, Travertine, Limestone, Quartzite, etc. are based on generally accepted industry acceptance. They do not necessarily reflect the geological composition of the material. In many cases, these materials are technically made of a different geological makeup. For example, many stones are commonly known as granites, but geologically, they are actually Charnockites, Polimitic Mataconglomerates, and any of other various different geological stones. In addition, many stones commonly referred to as marble are geologically limestone. Products shown on Shades of Stone's website reflect the industry classification of products and do not necessarily reflect the geological composition. Shades of Stone makes no guarantee or representation of the geological composition of any stone. In addition, the category reflected on our website, should not necessarily be used for customs classification. If the geological composition is important, we suggest getting the product tested by a scientific laboratory.
