A glossy surface that brings out the brilliancy in the stone’s colors and character. 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. Color will be visibly lighter than a polished finish.
An uneven but smooth surface created by "brushing" the surface. The hard areas remain while the softer areas are removed. This technique is only effective on marble and limestone with variations in hardness usually created by veining.
A natural stone finish achieved by the application of a hydraulic bush hammer to the surface. The even grazing creates a non-slip surface ideal for high traffic external areas.
