With an additional 200 new samples, bringing the total to 752, this new edition of Stone Sampler provides swatches of natural stone, including marble, travertine, onyx, granite, quartzite, and limestone, available for use in construction and decoration.

It is a concise, portable reference for architects, interior designers, and builders, summarizing the basic technical properties—quarrying locations, availability, compressive and tensile strength, resistance to wear and weather, and other specifications—for design and architecture professionals. General information, including geological and commercial classifications, properties and characteristics, and the various sourcing and processing techniques of stone, is also supplied. Perfect for designers and specifiers, the accompanying CD-ROM contains all the sample swatches in an easy-to-use TIFF format for Macintosh or PC.
