Natural stone, as one of the oldest building, decoration, or appliance materials, people’s understanding and use of it have a long history, and even can be traced back to ancient times. Its advantages are beyond doubt.
With the changes of the times, the improvement of human aesthetic taste, and the pursuit of uniqueness, the stone is favored because of its natural attributes, which can meet people’s permanent and unique inner desires. However, with the wide application of natural stone, various imitations appear frequently, and even various remarks attacking the defects of natural stone appear. Compared with a wide range of imitation products, natural stone has these unique advantages
- Precious: the formation process has a long history and is non-renewable. Every kind of natural stone is very precious;
2. Unique: each mine, each variety, each color, and each product is unique;
3. Stable materials: after a long period of use, such as decades or even hundreds of years, the vast majority of stones will not deform, change color and age; Some special products, such as measuring standard blocks and calibration tables, have very high requirements for stability, which can only be met by some natural stones;
4. Natural attributes: the buildings with natural stone can meet people’s psychological expectation of returning to nature; Neutral materials, respiratory function, health products; Noble, elegant, thick, high-end, and high-grade;
Materials are the basis of design. Designers connect various elements in series to give space more temperament and taste. For experienced designers with independent thinking ability, the stone color difference is “treasure”. When we deliver stone products to customers, we often encounter the following problems:
① Chromatic aberration
③ Nodules, sand holes, and holes
④ Color spot color line: striped, banded or mottled material inconsistent with the basic color and pattern
Many customers come to us and think that the quality of the materials we use is poor. This is a misunderstanding of stone materials. Today we will explain these problems about stone.
● Respect nature
Firstly, based on the understanding and understanding of stone, if you want to be neat and uniform, you should choose artificial stone instead of natural stone in the early material selection period.
Stone is formed in the natural environment after at least hundreds of millions of years of complex physical and chemical changes and geological movement evolution. Many internal and external factors will cause the ever-changing of stone.
This change is objective. The color of the stone is naturally formed. The color quality is determined by the pigment ions contained in stone and the internal structure. At the same time, the sequence of different minerals forming stone will also affect the change of color.
Natural creation, regardless of style, nature will not create natural stone according to people’s requirements. The perfect stoneworks we see are paved with selected stones after screening and trade-offs among a large number of stones.
Even after reprocessing and reprocessing in the later stage, any dyeing, touch-up, and color matching materials can not bring natural beauty and long-term effect.
● Not “defective”
For the marble stone with a color difference, we can’t look at it from the perspective of “defective”. Each marble collected from nature is different, and its color and texture are only similar, not the same.
And now this “color difference” highlighting style, taste and personality has gradually formed a new popular trend of indoor materials.
The stone color difference shows the greatest charm of stone to the greatest extent. The natural “color difference” is the most natural and pure beauty given to us by nature.
How to treat correctly
● How to correctly treat the natural properties of natural stone?
Because natural stone is wantonly imitated by many materials, it is bound to have a certain impact on the sales and price of natural stone. Secondly, the stone is not an industrial product, and the texture and color are naturally formed. Stone will have some natural “defects”, also known as defect beauty. It is precise because of this defect beauty that natural stone can not be copied and achieve more decorative buildings.
The “defect” beauty of marble
A. Natural color difference: the difference in color produced on the same large board.
B. Natural texture: small cracks in the stone.
C. Natural scabs, sand holes, and holes: large and small particle objects and pits in natural stone.
D. Natural color spot color line: striped, banded, or mottled material inconsistent with the background color and pattern of the basic plate.
However, these natural defects allow the imitation industry to attack. If the ceramic tiles imitating natural marble reflect “perfection”, they will be labeled “too fake” and can not be sold. The so-called “innovation” of ceramic tile people is how to imitate the so-called “defects” of natural marble vividly. The “defects” of natural marble have become their core competitiveness, which is a mockery of the “creator”.
Aiming at the problem of “color difference” of stone, we should follow nature, because natural things are very precious, use a little less. Well, we’ll write this article here first. You are welcome to email me with more questions at email@example.com.
