  • a major surface at least 2 feet wide by at least 6 feet long and extending perpendicularly to a slab thickness, the major surface having a first substantially bowed pigmented vein that extends generally lengthwise from edge-to-edge, wherein the first substantially bowed pigmented vein has a vein thickness equal to and parallel to the slab thickness, wherein the slab comprises at least two different particulate mineral mixes distributed in a series of successive layers according to a predefined pattern, a first of the two different particulate mineral mixes defining the first substantially bowed pigmented vein, and wherein the first particulate mineral mix occupies the entire slab thickness at a first region that defines the first substantially bowed pigmented vein and a second of the two different particulate mineral mixes occupies the entire slab thickness at a second region, the first particulate mineral mix being absent from the second region and the second particulate mineral mix being absent from the first region.
