Hello everyone,

I am currently building a house and am working on finalizing my living room fireplace design. I am looking for a natural LIGHT grey stone with subtle white veining for my fireplace. I am using white quartz with grey veining in most of my house and want to do something that is a little different but still cohesive. I have gone to several stone yards in my area but have not had any luck. I am working with someone who is going to be custom building this fireplace but they do not have any stone in stock that is to my liking. I live in a small city and am very limited in selection. I started looking online for other options but its difficult to tell what the true colors of the stone are based on photos alone.

I am looking for a light grey stone in color and most of the stones I am seeing online are very dark and some are almost black although they are considered grey.

If you have used a similar stone to what I am looking for please let me know. I would prefer marble but am open to other stones. The company I am using for the fireplace does not have experience utilizing porcelain otherwise I would be considering that as well.

If you could please provide any supplier recommendations, that would be greatly appreciated! I am located in New York state.

Any and all feedback is appreciated, thank you!
