NEW YANGTZE LIMESTONE
A high density limestone, New Yangtze Limestone is quarried in the Yangtze River Valley near the source of its ancient relative, Antique Yangtze Limestone, so they blend seamlessly in projects. Yet, New Yangtze Limestone is darker and more consistent in color, with small crystalline inclusions and occasional white veins. Ancient fossils visible throughout the stone confirm the natural history and variation to the final product.
Its true beauty appears through the light tooling marks of our hand finishes, which accentuate the deep chocolate tones of this eye-catching stone.
The popularity of New Yangtze Limestone is based its multiple applications, It's particularly striking in oversized architectural elements such as lintels, sills and stair blocks, and works equally well on all pavements, being much cooler underfoot than sandstone or granite.
Pavers, veneer, stair blocks, quoins, coping/caps, curbs, sills/lintels, carved objects, columns, sinks/tubs, slabs, cobblestones
New Yangtze Limestone accepts finishes on all faces. It must be mortar set as its strong, primary grain can cause edges to chip under pressure. For veneer, it may be mortar set with an exposed or raked joint or set more tightly in the wedge mortar method.
