Natural Stone Finishes

Natural stone is available in many different finishes. Some of the more popular finishes are:

Honed

A smooth matte finish which closely resembles the stone in its natural state.

Polished

A glossy finish giving the stone a smooth, reflective surface.

Sandblasted

This finish is achieved by a steady pressure wash of sand and water on the stone surface.

Suede

A textured surface that has been softened by brushing to create a smoother matte finish.

Tumbled

This process involves tumbling the stone in water, river rock and sand to make it look old and weathered.
