The rocks are processed in mechanized processing units where large rocks are cut as per requirement into slabs, tiles, and more. The slabs are processed at first, preceded by flooring tiles and lasts is walling tile. The natural material is not uniform in color therefore small variation is seen in every tile when processed and when preserved.
