Engineered artificial stone creates something beautiful and lasting from what marble quarries before wasted. Pieces of stones are crushed, ground and mixed with a small amount of polyester resin then compressed and heated. The slabs are a composite materials , capable of providing physical and mechanical qualities superior to materials in natural form.
