Can I use kadappa black, kotah or shahabad yellow stone as an interior flooring?

Q: Are kadappa black, kotah and shahabad yellow stone good dense stones? can they be used in interior flooring? In India one of the top companies is indicted on doctoredstone.org so it is very difficult to trust any vendor. In such a scenario, would it be foolishness to choose natural stone?

A: This will depend on the intended application of the stone. For residential use, it should be fine. For commercial use, an evaluation of the traffic and application will be needed. I would suggest if you intend to use any stone in a commercial application that you consult with a stone expert.
