Choosing materials for a remodel or another project can seem overwhelming at times, especially since there is so much to choose from. Even when it comes to natural stone there are a lot of choices to be made, what type, cross cut or vein cut stone, the options seem endless. However, this really allows you to customize your space.
Vein cut stone shows the mineral veins running either lengthwise along the slab or vertically. This is also known as cutting against the vein.
A cross cut slab is sliced at a 90 degree angle to what the vein cut slab would have been. It shows a cross section of the veins and layers in the stone block. This style of cut is accomplished by cutting with the vein.
Though the two slabs from the same block share the exact same composition of colors and minerals, the results can be wildly different.
