What is Stonex?

I've seen a shower tray made from Stonex. The description says it's durable but not what material it is. Does anyone know if this is a stone composite or something else?

"Stonex is cast from mineral and natural stone resin. It is hard wearing and durable and feels like stone. It is slip resistant because of the texture and is superslim but expensive"

"STONEX is a composition of stone and resin with a unique gel coating on top. This protects the the tray from UV and chemical wearing better then other manufacturers using a normal acrylic finish. They are also cast with a natural stone finish which is attractive but also reduces the risk of slipping."

"Good afternoon
Stonex is a STONE RESIN ( resin reinforced) shower tray with high resistance to abrasive chemical products and ultraviolet lights, textured finished for high slip resistance and very slim design to facilitates floor level instalation.
Hopefully this answer will help.
Thank you."

"Stonex material is cast from mineral and natural stone resins. Giving not only a resilient build. But because of the way it's cast, a unique natural texture that adds to the existing anti-slip properties."

"I used to be a polymer scientist, now I fit bathrooms, (don't ask!)
Stonex is a composite (something made from more than one material) material made from ground minerals and a polymer (usually acrylic) resin, there is no such thing as a stone resin, there is stone and there is resin, the resin (matrix) is used to bind the mineral particles (filler) together.
Most shower trays are made of composites, despite some replies, I doubt that any are actually stone."
