A number of types of marble and stone, particularly varieties of alabaster and onyx, become translucent when cut to form veneers no more than a few millimetres thick. Bonding these veneers to glass with a special clear UV-resistant resin produces panels which can be used in a wide range of architectural applications, for example for architectural cladding where they will benefit from natural light. They can also be used in a variety of applications in which illumination is provided by artificial light or where a glass surface is required to provide protection. Fiberstone glass can be produced from any kind of translucent marble or onyx.
