What are Exotic Stone Slabs?

What Makes a Stone Slab Exotic?

Exotic stone slabs are a unique and high-end option that is not one particular material but rather uses a carefully curated combination of materials to create a rare and exceptional appearance. Said materials are identified by a trained stone expert who can recognize certain features like color, veining, or patterns that make the slab an extraordinary piece. They are highly regarded for their beauty and ability to be used in a wide variety of ways.

What Are The Different Types of Exotic Stones?

A plethora of different natural stone materials can be manufactured into exotic stone slabs. Most notably, they can be discovered in granite, marble, and quartzite stone slabs, but they have also been found in dolomite and onyx.

Transparent stones are another exotic option, which are slabs that can be specially manufactured to be thin enough to allow light to pass through. They make truly one-of-a-kind art pieces that add a flair of natural beauty to any space.

How Can Exotic Stones Be Used in a Design?

The ways to use exotic stones are only limited by your design imagination. They work well in homes and commercial spaces and, in some cases, can even be used outside. The most common ways our clients have used exotic stones are in their kitchens, bathrooms, and living rooms. Exotic stones make great countertops, floors, cladding on cabinets, walls, or around fireplaces, or as art.

Be sure to check out our blog on how to use translucent stones in your design for some great inspiration.
