Beige topaz marble and Taihang red granite also have a big market because their colors are more in line with the aesthetic habits of most Chinese people.
Stone home furnishings show “noble and luxurious”. In terms of quality, the gap between the domestic stone and imported stone is not big, but the price of the stone is much less. The main reason is that the imported stone is more varied and more decorative, which means that the imported stone is better looking. This gap in craftsmanship cannot be eliminated all at once. At present, domestic manufacturers are working hard to narrow this gap. In terms of practicality, domestic stone can be said to be no less inferior to imported stone.

One thing needs special attention. Although marble and granite are luxurious and noble, they are also prone to produce radioactive gases such as radon, which can cause harm to the human body. In particular, some unqualified granite products are more radioactive. Consumers should pay special attention to the safety factor when purchasing. When the safety factor is greater than 0.8, the indoor radon concentration after decoration will generally not exceed the standard. If conditions permit, you can also ask professional institutions to conduct radioactivity testing.
