Archive for Semi-precious stone
I recently visited an amazing stone company, Cactus Stone, in Scottsdale, AZ. While I have visited many stone companies there has never been such a variety in one place. It is several football fields in size and the rows go on and on. There are many common granite and quartz slabs but what caught my eye was the amazing range of color of the semi-precious stone slabs.
To produce semi-precious stone slabs the raw material goes through a long process. Each semi-precious stone is individually cut and bound together with an epoxy resin to create not only stunning slabs, but true works of art. These unique slabs are suitable for kitchen counters, bathrooms, decorative walls, and floors. Here are a few of the fabulous semi-precious stone slabs at Cactus Stone.
Now you can see why the selection at Cactus Stone would get a designer’s creative juices flowing. Many of these illustrations of semi-precious slabs need very special placement to make them work. Also, most of these stone can be back-lit for extra drama! Here is a beautiful example from the Majestic Gemstone website.
I photographed so many different type of stone products at this place. Quartzite is another product I’ll discuss in a future post.
Dream big about where you could potentially use semi-precious stone. Which one is your favorite?
