Limestone

Limestone is another sedimentary rock formed at the bottom of lakes and seas, where over millions of years, heat and pressure cause the sediment to turn to stone. Often containing unique fossil specimens which give it a characteristically earthy feel, it adds invaluable depth and charm. It has been a popular choice in architecture the world over, gaining popularity as a sophisticated flooring material its true warmth and aesthetic appeal cannot be beaten.

Design Considerations

Limestones can vary conciderably in colour and texture, as well as its hardness and therefore suitability for some applications. For this reason, we usually only sell from stock and are pleased to have customers see physical stock and discuss their intended application.

Surface finish

  • Polished Only available with certain harder stones.
  • Honed The most common surface finish.Can vary between matt and a slight sheen.
  • Brushed A textured surface that varies with the hardness of the material and the degree of brushing.
  • Water worn A process that gently ages the stone giving a softer look with slightly contoured edges.

Sizes and Thickness

Slab sizes vary from 260cm up to 340cm in length, with heights ranging from 120cm up to 200cm. Thickness vary between 20mm to 60mm as commonly used for most projects, however thicknesses can be adjusted to any thickness upon request.
