Hand-cut from primitive flows of cooled magma, Lava’s multiple tiny air holes create its instantly recognizable texture, excellent slip resistance and natural cooling ability making it perfectly suited to pool deck paving, wet walkways and surfaces where bare feet abound. 


Lavastone is the only volcanic material on the market capable of being modified by hand finishes. Our eye-catching honed and polished surfaces offer our clients a unique, high quality alternative to the crude saw marks evident in other market offerings.

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.
