    Hi margaritashine! From everything we see in agate countertops, usually the stones are mined and placed into a large pattern for the slab, then an epoxy is poured in, and holds the stones in place. Then it's sliced and polished to get the finished look. We're a backlighting company, so we don't actually do this, but we've learned a little bit about it, just from being around the industry!

Other counters can be more than 3 inches thick, as with the stunning brown agate waterfall counter shown in this photo.
