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.

SILK ROAD SANDSTONE

Our top selling sandstone is prized for its warmth, subtle color variations and its clean aesthetic. 

 

Silk Road Sandstone carves and holds hand finishes very well, making it ideal for pool and patio pavements where non-slip but soft finishes are required underfoot. It is also regularly used for interior pavements and fireplace surrounds, its warmth complementing the rich color of nearby furnishings. As a split veneer, the natural cleft of the material highlights subtle movements in color from stone to stone.

Recommended Uses

Pavers, veneer, stair blocks, quoins, coping/caps, curbs, sills/lintels, carved object, columns, sinks/tubs, slabs and cobblestones

Installation

Silk Road Sandstone may be installed in all standard setting techniques – mortar or thinset on slab or by sand setting.
