An ongoing issue with natural stone products is the difference between the customer’s expectation of the appearance of the marble and the surface texture irregularities that are inherent to natural stone surfaces. Customers often expect a polished, glassy smooth finish, with absolutely no signs of fissures (extremely small cracks which may contain mineral-bearing material), indentations or veining. This is not only unrealistic, it fails to consider the characteristics that make marble and other natural stone products so amazing, unique, and naturally beautiful. Fissures and veining are inherent of marble and considered acceptable. Fissures and veining are in no way a structural defect.
