Varying base colors are blended together; many of our standard products have up to 8 different base colors blended together.

A tell-tale sign of manufactured stone is seeing the same stone repeated in a project. Hajj Art Stone avoids that by casting from thousands of individual molds. There is up to 100 meter of master molds per product. Our coloring process also ensures that no two stones will look exactly alike. Look for repeats when you are choosing your stone brand!
The thickness range is between 1 cm - 15 cm, The average thickness is 3 cm.

Yes. Painted or sealed concrete surfaces must be sand blasted or equivalent to clean concrete. Concrete surfaces must be saturated with water to prevent the moisture in the mortar from being absorbed into the surface. This will cause the application mortar to be weak.
Exposure to water is not a problem. However, keep in mind that stone should not be installed below water levels where chlorine, chemicals and other contaminants may be present.
Water intrusion of a building is not a problem caused by the stone but rather by improper wall preparation. Following installation instructions and codes for proper installations of building papers, flashings, and sealing around wall, will prevent water intrusion.
