Why are some stones more expensive than others?

There are a number of factors that affect the pricing of our products, a stone which is unattractive or unfashionable is not going to be expensive. A popular colour which is available in a number of stones, such as black granite is relatively cheap as it is easily available. Certain materials are unique to areas in the world, creating a more premium price. The extent to which each material is fragile also alters the price, as extraction, manufacturing and fitting can be difficult.
