Due to the nature of the FAIRYTALE manufacturing process and techniques, certain products may exhibit slight variations, minor marks, pitting, porosity and/or color anomalies. Variations in colour and veining are inherent in wood, stone (marble) and considered to be part of the natural beauty of the material.
