These stones are man made from crushed natural granite and quartz and on par with the full natural stone in their beauty but also can be more resiliant to breakages and stains and are heat resistant. The colours are more consistent than the natural stones however there will be differences between batches. The ‘recon’ stone benchtops are generally less expensive than marble and granite.
Available in 20mm and 30mm thickness and then fabricated to 40mm, 60mm, 150mm, etc.
Generally the man-made stones are not suitable for outdoors in direct sunlight as they can be effected by prolonged UV ray exposure (at this point).
