Natural stone is a random product of nature and therefore includes considerable variations and "imperfections" such as color range, veining, texture, size, and cleft. These “imperfections” are responsible for creating the overall look and feel of each stone's individual style. While natural stone is considered to be a durable material, there are several factors that can influence the erosion, weathering, alteration, and decay of all natural stone materials. These factors include, but are not limited to:

Dissolution - A process where some minerals are dissolved in water.
Oxidation or “Rusting” - A process when iron-bearing minerals are exposed to high temperatures, moisture, or oxygen.
Spalling/Flaking - Caused by Freeze/Thaw, Thermal Expansion, Wetting & Drying or exposure to Salts.
