Surface Finishing

Polished

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.

Honed

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.

Antique

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.

Sandblasted
A matte, semi-rough surface that is textured by a pressurized flow of sand. The surface is very porous. Not all stones sandblast well.
Flamed
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.
Bush Hammered

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.
