Amalgamated, or Engineered stones provide the customer the option of choosing colours, brilliance and theme which may not be available with natural stones, or might be too expensive if opted for through natural stones. As an example, customers requiring beachside or seaside theme might opt for fossil rocks in their garden or shell embedded engineered stones.
Similarly, with pure white stones becoming rare and expensive, customers could opt for milky white crystal stones, or various variants of those stones. Other examples of engineered stones are ceramic mixed marble stones, which use marble waste amalgamated with ceramic to give the look and feel of expensive marble stones. Amalgamated stones are not always cheap, but they are good replacement of expensive counterparts in natural stones.
In addition, engineered stones can be designed to the specification of the customer, when it comes to physical and chemical properties of the stones.
