Pits, fissures and dull spots, some granites exhibit these characteristics more than others, and they may also be more or less visible depending on the lighting conditions present in a room. Pits, fissures and dull spots do not compromise the integrity of the granite in any way; they are natural characteristics and will not impair the function or durability of the material. They are an expression of nature.
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 the StoneTex, LLC website reflect the industry classification of products and do not necessarily reflect the geological composition.
