Synthetic stones are smooth tiles that have a stone-like appearance and texture. However, these stones tend to appear extremely shiny and fake. For this reason, property owners often opt for using natural stones like marble tiles over synthetic ones.

People prefer using natural stones in their buildings because natural stones:

Are easily accessible and available
Are available in a rich variety of colours, types, textures and mineral compositions
Are durable and therefore, cost effective
Can withstand wear, tread and weather
Possess characteristics such as being hygienic, waterproof and unreactive with cleaning agents and bacteria
Are easy to maintain
