Natural Stone Disclaimer:

Natural stone is a relatively hard, naturally formed mineral or petrified matter, produced by nature. Part of it’s beauty are the veins, color variation, striation and an infinite number of anomalies from fossils to fractures that create the unique look and feel of a natural stone.

Therefore, considerable variations including, but not limited to, color, texture, size, and cleft may and probably will be present. These “imperfections” in color range, veining, and texture are responsible for creating the look, style and feel you are attempting to achieve.

We at RCP Block & Brick strive to obtain and sell the highest quality and most diverse selection of natural stone available in the market today. Even though we do provide as much information as we have regarding any particular stone, it is still necessary for you to understand and accept one tried and true fact and a few possibilities about natural stone before making your final selection.
