Marble is a metamorphic stone which has a structure that can take a very high polish. Marble will normally show "veins" or high concentrations of movement. Because of its beauty and elegance, marble is a popular choice for countertops, floors, foyers, fireplace facings and hearths, walls, decorative features, and windowsills.

Granite is one of the most durable stones used in artistic and architectural applications and is a great solution for projects for homes or businesses. Granite is highly resistant to scratching, cracking and staining, and is impervious to heat. It is often used for counter tops, flooring, walls, and architectural trim. Each type of stone is unique and will vary in color, texture and marking. Learn more at the Marble Institute of America. GRANITE GALLERY
Travertine colors are warm, earthy tones and never appear as one solid color. The color tones vary and veins or bands of contrasting color run throughout the stone. Travertine is used for walls, kitchen back splashes, travertine sinks, floors, mosaics, columns, statues, fireplace surrounds, tub surrounds, vanities, and more.
The surface finishes for travertine stone are commonly honed or tumbled. Learn more at the Marble Institute of America
Because onyx transmits light, it is most often used as a fireplace surround, bar top, or small island. It is also used in wall cladding, sinks, light duty residential floors, and tables. Backlighting or under lighting can accent the stone and highlight the color and the stone's translucent qualities. Learn more at Marble Institute of America.
Quartzite is a hard metamorphic rock which was originally pure quartz sandstone. Pure quartzite is usually white to grey, which are very popular colors, though quartzites often occur in various shades of pink, red, yellow, green, blue and orange, due to other minerals. It is harder and more resistant to stains than granite.
Slate is a very fine-grained rock of mostly microscopic clay minerals with some microscopic quartz and calcite. Slate can commonly be found in dark green, black, gray, dark red or multi-colored. It is most commonly used as a flooring material and used on walls as well and can be distinguished by its distinct cleft texture. Learn more at Marble Institute of America
Limestone is widely used in architectural applications for walls, decorative trim and veneer with colors typically light gray, tan or buff. A distinguishing characteristic of many limestones is the presence of fossils that are frequently visible in the stone surface.
Mees Tile and Marble can supply limestone, special cut stones, as well as veneers for both commercial and residential projects. Limestone can also be matched to existing limestone on your building.
