The Ammonite Collection
Semi-precious stone slabs make a stunning addition to your interior
These exquisite materials can be used for a wide variety of applications due to their hardness and resistance to staining and/or scratches.
Some examples of their uses include kitchen surfaces, vanity units and floors, to name but a few. These semi-precious stone slabs include LED backlighting which enhances their beauty so you can really appreciate these materials as Mother Nature intended.
Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions with regards to the production of these beautiful slabs.
This could not be further from the truth. The reasons for this are simple:
a) The slabs are not cut from blocks in the same way as say onyx, marble or granite
b) Semi-precious stone slabs are made up of hundreds of individual sections/pieces that are assembled almost like a giant jigsaw puzzle and are set in resin.
While slabs may indeed look similar, this process basically makes it impossible for any two slabs to look exactly the same.
This is also not true. Sourced from high quality quarries around the world, semi-precious stones fall into different categories, including quartz and agates.
Quartz is a hard, silica-based mineral found around the world in metamorphic and igneous rocks. Typically occurring as white or colourless hexagonal prisms, quartz is often coloured delicately by impurities. Some of most popular Quartz materials used within interior design are: Amethyst, Smokey Quartz and White Quartz.
Agate is found in a variety of bright, translucent colours, including white, grey and black; blue, purple and green; red, orange and brown, as well as yellow. Agate is a form of microcrystalline, a finely grained form of quartz. Some of the most popular Agates used within interior design are: Natural Agate, Grey Agate and Black Agate.
