Natural Stone Characteristics:
All natural stone products are unique and will vary in colour and texture, often showing distinctive markings, minor imperfections and may include mineral deposits such as iron and quartzite. Sizes are nominal and may vary. Some paving manufacturers include the pointing allowance in the individual slab sizes whereas others include the pointing allowance in the overall pack coverage. The product images shown are as accurate as photographic processes allow and may appear differently in accordance with lighting conditions and screen calibration in addition to the natural variation occurring between batches. Images may not be a true representation of a particular product size, use or laying pattern. Descriptions provided offer a combination of the manufacturer’s and our own opinion of the product’s characteristics and features.
Limestone is a type of sedimentary rock formed mainly from calcium carbonate. This is often as a result of the accumulation of shell, coral and algal matter formed in the clear, warm shallow marine waters. Natural limestone paving has a textured feel and a gently undulating surface, but without the riven texture found in sandstone. It is available in a selection of finishes:a natural finish with hand-chipped edges, an antique or tumbled finish where the surface and edges have been smoothed to create an aged appearance and a sawn finish where the surface is flat with a slip-resistant, sand-blasted surface and sawn edges. It is often produced in a calibrated thickness where the variation in thickness of the slab is kept to a minimum to aid the laying process. Its colours are far more consistent across each slab than sandstone.
Limestone tends to come in a choice of three colours, buff/grey, kota/steel blue and black/ dark grey. The darker black shades can gradually lighten with weathering, however sealing the paving will help retain the dark colouration. Other minerals may appear within the stone such as quartzite veining and iron oxide.
