Aurora Stone’s natural stone products, when sealed, are resistant to wear and tear, as well as to staining, corrosion, and heat. Natural stone is very easy to clean and does not require special chemicals or solvents for its upkeep. Fewer or no chemicals mean a healthier home environment. Depending on the surface texture or the natural sheen of your stone products, it may not ever need any other maintenance.

Apart from being stain and scratch resistant, this type of stone is also resistant to bacterial growth. It is also not easily damaged by burns and scorch, so it is perfect for kitchen working surfaces. It also has a very luxurious appearance, giving your kitchen an instant air of opulence.
Granite offers unlimited choices in terms of colours and patterns. It is known for being heat-resistant, and, once sealed, is also resistant to stains. Granite stone tops cost less than other stone surfaces, making them a very budget-friendly option.
Marble is a classic option for stone bench tops, lending your kitchen and your home an elegant and timeless design, thanks to its bright white appearance that other stones do not have. It is also less likely to chip when cut because it is a softer stone. As with the other stones, it is also naturally heat-resistant.
