FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

 

The pictures look great but what about some samples?

  • Awesome idea, we highly recommend this! We would be happy to mail some pieces out to you. Order samples on the individual product page for the stone you are interested in. Shipping thin veneer is more reasonable on shipping and will help you compare color and texture to what you are looking for.
