Marble, a natural stone, shows a lot of variations, which adds another dimension to its beauty. However, this variation can be challenging. For example, many vendors handle color variation in different ways. The most common practice is to specify the materials as lots and present different lots to customers for selection. If your project is a continuation/upgrade/replacement for an existing product, you need to share your sample stone with the vendors to specify the correct lots. If your accent materials like cabinets, appliances, wall colors require a specific tone, share it with your vendor. We at StoneTileDepot take color variation very seriously and keep an identical copy of your sampled product at our customer service department. The warehouse holds a copy of your order for lot number definitions.
