Marble is a natural stone , hence variations in colour, shade, texture, natural markings, are to be accepted. These differences are part of what makes the stone uniquely beautiful and are not considered flaws. Photographs of products are only intended to represent the general characteristics of the product.  Each piece is carefully hand crafted by artisans using techniques passed down through the generations.  We have photographed only one piece therefore other pieces may differ slightly, with less or sometimes more natural marks simply adding to their uniqueness.
