Please read this important disclaimer.
Stone is not manufactured; it is a product of nature. Blocks are removed from the quarry, slabs are cut from the blocks and the slabs are further fabricated into the final stone to be installed. Each block Is different; each slab is different. Therefore, the composition. mineral content and overall functionality of the individual slabs may vary, regardless of the stone classification. The same is true for floor tiles. It is not possible to guarantee that all the colors and markings on a large stone deposit will be present in every slab or tile. nor that every characteristic of a slab or tile will be uniformly present in other slabs, tiles, or large stone deposits. Your stone order will present with a range of color, shade. and characteristics indicative to that species of stone. This includes but is not limited to variation in the composition, mineral content and overall functionality of the individual slabs, regardless of the stone classification. It is not possible - nor do we extend any expressed or implied guarantee - as to a specific stone color. shade, characteristics. durability or functionality. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions Acceptance Form BEFORE you finalize your purchase.

All surfaces sold by Marble of the World, in varying degrees depending on product type, are prone to scratching, etching and staining.
