Stone is a natural product cut out of the earth. With this process, it is extracted out in a cube form and then sliced like bread. It is a milled product and there is a variation to the thickness through out the slabs. When it is extracted, the piece is called a lot. With a lot, all “slices” are all identical to each other so a dark blemish, for example, will go through the entire lot. So, looking at one slab you can determine what all of the cut pieces will look like. Every lot will be different from the next in color and veining.
