Natural stone is the oldest building material known to man. Formed over millions of years through heat and pressure, every natural stone slab is one-of-a-kind.
All of our natural stone starts its journey at a stone quarry—where natural stone begins deep within the Earth’s crust. As the stone is extracted from the quarry, it is cut into large blocks and then processed into stone slabs. Every block of stone and every stone slab we import is individually hand-selected with care and inspected for quality, color, veining, and consistency. These blocks of stone are then placed on a container and shipped overseas to The Stone Collection showrooms, where we then receive the materials into inventory, professionally photograph them, and place them in our galleries on display.

Depending upon the natural process, composition, and characteristics, natural stones have been grouped into categories such as granite, marble, limestone, travertine, quartzite, sandstone, and onyx. At The Stone Collection, we work with only the best natural stone quarries from over 30 countries to bring you the best selection and quality of natural stone in the industry. Our natural stone materials include granite, marble, dolomite, onyx, quartzite, soapstone, limestone, travertine, sandstone, and slate. Stones classified as a schist or a gneiss are classified with Granites. Since each natural stone has its own properties and characteristics, some stones are more suitable for specific applications than others.
We display our natural stone slabs gallery-style, in a clean, well-lit environment that is temperature-controlled. This allows us to showcase each unique stone slab as a work of art. With over 350 colors and an inventory of over 50,000 slabs company-wide, you’ll be sure to find the perfect natural stone for your next project at any of our showrooms.
