We had picked a completely different stone at our original design meeting. When we went to pick out our slab we just did not like the look of the lot. The color was too "rusty" for us so we hummed and hawed over what to do. Finally after poking around the granite place we found this slab that had all the colors that we wanted. It's a different stone and it has a lot less white in it then I expected but I think it is a winner!
