Stone Database

Stone Database

Stone identification can be tricky sometimes—even for a seasoned veteran. One type of stone can have several different names, and sometimes stone is improperly labeled. Knowing what type of stone you are working with is incredibly important for avoiding problems or for accurately diagnosing and resolving problems, as well as proper maintenance.

Our Stone Database for PROs allows users to input relevant information that may be helpful for others. For example, does the stone react with acid? Can it be scratched with a knife? Does it contain fossils and shell fragments? Is the finish flamed? The color of veining may indicate the stone contains certain types of minerals that may have physical or chemical properties that are unlike the surrounding stone.

The best quality of results can be achieved by surface care professionals who understand the stone, which begins with accurate stone identification.
