Types of natural stone

A timeless touch of natural beauty that complements any interior and exterior project. Discover some of the amazing natural stones from all around the world that STONE loves to introduce to you.

Limestone is a sedimentary rock that is formed by the accumulation of (calcareous) material remains of marine organisms. Limestone therefore mainly consists of calcium carbonate and fossils are regularly found in it (shells, ammonites, etc.). Bluestone is an example of a fossil limestone, consisting of the remains of sea lilies.

In bold colors, veined or with a crystalline structure. Polished or blasted and tempered, from the far-flung corners of Europe or close to us; no other type of natural stone appeals to the imagination like marble does. From timeless classics like Carrara or Emperador to the most exclusive types such as Calacatta, Estatuario, Fior di bosco, Breccia Capraia or Arrabescato, you will definitely find a marble type that fits your interior.

Slate is a stone characterized by a clear, dominant foliation of alternating layers. Thanks to this foliation, slate has a strong cleavage and crumbles into thin, plate-shaped chunks. Slate is naturally formed by the metamorphosis of clay-rich sediment, such as shale or clay stone.

Quartzite is a rock that mainly consists of the mineral quartz. Quartzite often arose from (sedimentary) quartz sand that was initially compressed into sandstone. The individual sand grains can still be seen in such sandstone. Quartzite can also be further hardened by pressure and temperature or by deposition of binding gravel, after which the individual grains are no longer visible.

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock that mainly consists of grains of sand. During sedimentation of sand grains, also silt, lime, gravel, glimmers, feldspar and other rock fragments are deposited. Due to weathering, an originally yellow-brown sandstone turns gray. The occurrence of certain oxides and other minerals colors variants brown-red.

Granite is an intrusive rock, which means that it is formed by the underground solidification of magma. Because granite has solidified at depth, the minerals have had time to form crystals during slow cooling.

Quarry stone is a natural stone of irregular shape, as it has been removed uncut or only slightly treated from the quarry. Thanks to the unique character, surface and structure, quarry stones add a natural touch to every project.
