A glossy surface that brings out the brilliancy in the stone's colors. The texture is very smooth and is not very porous.
A flat or low-sheen finish that is smooth in texture. It is fairly porous and natural looking. C
olor will be visibly lighter
than a polished finish.
Antiqued ( Acid )
An uneven but smooth "soft" surface created by "brushing" the surface. The hard areas remain while t
he softer areas
are removed. This technique is only effective on marble and limestone with variations in
hardness usually created by veining.
A matte, semi-rough surface that is textured by a pressurized flow of sand. The surface is very porous. N
ot all stone
sandblast well; hard and soft spots can create unattractive patterns in limestone and marble.
A grooved texture that adds dimension to the surface of honeycomb stone panel. honeycomb stone panels are lightly sawn to create ridges in the stone face.
A grooved texture that adds dimension to the surface of the stone panels. honeycomb stone panels are lightly sawn to create grooves in the stone surface.
A rough, textured finish that is developed by pounding the stone. The surface is very porous. Not all stones are fit to
be bush hammered.
A rough, textured finish that is achieved by exposing the stone to intense heat and immediate cooling. When heated
and cooled, the crystals in the stone pop. The surface is very porous. Not all stones can be flamed; they must have the correct crystal structure.
