Finishes

Polished

A polished finish is created when a stone surface reaches it's most refined stage. It is buffed to the highest level possible, and the results are either a high shine or the actual highest level of shine that can be achieved naturally. This finish gives the stone a very elegant and rich look, providing it with a pinnacle depth of color. Applications (Usage):- Walls & Floors (Interior & Exterior) Read more

Honed

This finish is created by buffing the stone to slightly less than the highest level. The result is a smooth but dull appearance. A honed finish refers to any level that is less than polished and therefore encompasses many levels of dullness. Applications (Usage):- Walls & Floors (Exterior). Read more

BushHammered

A bush hammer is a specialized stone-working hammer with a head that resembles a meat tenderizing hammer. Because the head of the hammer is usually small (about 1-2 inches square) it takes a long time to apply this finish to a large surface area. The result leaves the surface of the stone fairly smooth with small indentations. A bush-hammered finish can be applied to nearly all stones. Applications (Usage):- Walls (Interior & Exterior) & Floors (Exterior) Read more

Flamed

A Flamed finish is produced when an intense flame is fired at the stone, causing the surface to burst and become rough. This finish is used primarily for exteriors applications where slip-resistance is extremely important. A flamed finish cannot be applied to all stones; however, most granite and certain hard limestone are preferred. Applications (Usage):- Walls & Floors (Interior & Exterior) Read more
