NSI Accreditation for natural stone fabricators and commercial contractors. It recognizes those companies that meet the industry's highest standards for business activities, product knowledge, fabrication and installation. The Natural Stone Institute (formerly known as the Marble Institute of America) accredits companies, not individuals.
To earn NSI Accreditation, a company must complete an intensive, rigorous process that includes documentation of its business and employment practices, letters of recommendation, a written examination and site visits to the facility and completed jobs.
Stone Interiors has successfully completed this challenging process. Accreditation means you are choosing a company that truly cares about quality.
Marble is metamorphosed sedimentary carbonate rock. Limestone or dolomite (carbonate rocks) are the typical base minerals. The recrystallization of the carbonate minerals result in Marble.
Often, the original structure of the carbonate rocks are modified during the metamorphism to render the marble unrecognizable from its original state. The swirling and veins in marble often result from mineral impurities which are in layers in the original limestone or dolomite.
Granite is normally a coarse grained igneous rock that is comprised of quartz, feldspars and micas. The quartz will be be the lighter color minerals with the remaining consisting of feldspars and muscovite. The dark minerals are hornblende or biotite. Granite is by far the most common rock found in the outer crust of the planet. Granite is formed by the cooling of magma in the ground. Granite is an outstanding material for countertops.
