This is a very popular durable, low-maintenance limestone. With the etched, low-slip finish it is especially suitable for outside uses such as patios and swimming-pool surrounds.
An etched finish is created by sand-blasting.
An etched finish makes stone surfaces less slippery. It also softens the colour of the stone for a slightly more muted finish. This is particularly appropriate for hard stones that are used for exteriors and pool surrounds.
