As you'd expect in a natural product, stone does vary in colour and texture, even in the same quarry block. That's what makes stone so unique.
We recommend using the images on our website to initially chose the colour, texture and look you prefer, then talk to us to see our current samples. Mockups are also a great option before making your final decision. We strive to provide a product of the highest quality, but please remember it's stone, not paint. The colour and texture of the next layer in the quarry was defined millions of years ago.

HERON'S EGG GRANITE

Heron's Egg Granite captures the best of the geological past and inspires fresh concepts for the future. In this stone, shimmering mica and feldspar glisten, beckoning a closer look, while quartz, saturated with deep grays, blankets the surface with a calm richness. The result is one of the most visually stunning materials in our collection. Its appearance is enhanced by our hand finishes, which batter and dampen the surface, creating clean white crystals that contrast the flickering minerals to great effect.

Often used as a split edge wall surface or as a paver, the hand-tooled finishes on Heron's Egg Granite will highlight lintels, sills and copings. Honing the surface darkens it even further and produces dramatic slab work.

As with many of our materials, large-scale formats are available by special order.

Recommended Uses

Pavers, veneers, quoins, coping/caps. curbs, sills/lintels, carved objects, columns, sinks/tubs, slab, cobblestones, drain grates
