Cross cut or Vein cut?

Surely, the cutting direction of each block greatly affects the outward appearance of the stone, being able to obtain completely different products starting from the same block. If we look at a block of stone, it will be easy to notice the layers, given from the overlapping of the geological strata over the centuries. Thanks to the use of the blades, the block will be cross-cut: the material will show a more marked color shading between a slab and the other, for slight differences in a stratification of the other, and possibly some flowering or cloud effect. If the blades cut perpendicular to the layers, the material is called vein cut: the pieces will be more consistent with each other, with a slight shade of color in the single piece, and show the veins, so it seems to read the stratification.
