While granite, limestone, and other types of natural stone are completely opaque, onyx, alabaster, and marble are translucent. When back-lighting is used on panels fabricated from these stones, their ability to transmit light gives them a luminous appearance. Illumination also reveals the subtle details of the complex patterning found in these extraordinary stones.
Translucent stone panels by StonePly are suitable for many applications, and back-lighting ensures they will be brilliant and radiant focal points regardless of where they are placed.

Fabrication and Installation of StonePly Natural Stone Panels
Lightweight and shatter-resistant translucent stone panels are created by bonding a thin layer of light-emitting stone to glass or polycarbonate using epoxy. The pieces of translucent stone are slid into U-shaped channels. Finally, all joints are sealed. The attachment system will not create any unsightly shadows and dark areas behind individual panels, and provides adequate room for the addition of back-lighting.
