Creating a lasting impression



Coldspring is on the cutting edge of natural stone finishes. For decades, we have been developing and fine-tuning a variety of standard and proprietary finishes.

Our comprehensive suite of standard finishes — from the glossy, highly reflective Polish to the rough-hewn textures of our Diamond® series, to the smooth surface that Hone generates on limestone — is where you’ll discover a finish that perfectly conveys the inspiration behind your design. For custom finishes, our craftsmen welcome the opportunity to meet the most demanding design requirements. In fact, some of our most difficult custom challenges have evolved into some of our standard finishes.

Finish Descriptions



Diamond 10: This finish richly highlights the stone's reflective crystals, enhancing and contrasting with the depth of the darker colors. Diamond 100: A semi-rough surface, this finish is textured to reveal vibrant colors in a deep, rich background. Diamond 200: A consistent, coarse-textured surface that exposes the natural beauty of the stone's crystals on a pronounced jagged background.
Diamond 300: A heavy water pressure treatment reveals the radiant crystals within the stone's surface through a dramatically course texture. Diamond 8: This hone finish dramatically highlights the stone's crystal structure while deepening its background hues. Diamond Ground: A coarse surface that is slightly rough to the touch, the finish mutes the appearance of the stone's natural color and grain structures.
Hone: Available only on limestone, this non-reflective, smooth finish draws out the stone's natural colors and variations. Machine Smooth: Accentuated with light swirls, the natural traits of the stone are masked by this process to understate its customary characteristics. Diamond Smooth: This limestone finish is non-reflective and mutes the stone's natural traits to create subtle contrasts and highlights.
Pacific: This finish highlights the stone's vibrant colors and crystals through a smooth surface textured in soft waves. Polished: A highly reflective, smooth finish that magnifies the stone's natural appearance by illuminating the vibrant colors. Rock Pitch / Split and Dressed: A natural, jagged cleft-face design permeates this finish, with trimmed edges that create a rugged, yet defined effect throughout. Faces will be convex.
Rub and Sand: Semi-smooth and light in appearance, this finish creates a subtle contrast between the stone's color and crystals. Sawn: The process of sawing leaves slight grooves, swirl marks and lines on the stone's surface, softening its natural traits. Split: A natural, jagged cleft-face design permeates this finish, with untrimmed edges that create a rugged effect throughout. Faces can be convex, concave or flat.
Textured: Both rough yet soft to the touch, this finish contrasts the vibrant crystals against a lightened background. Diamond 5: Non-reflective, smooth. Subtle contrasts and highlights bring out stone's colors. Thermal: Rough to the touch, this finish showcases the stone's sparking crystals against a lightened background.
Velvet: A relatively smooth surface, this finish exhibits muted swirls and deep tones that accentuate its soft textures. Bush-Hammer: Crystals are uniformly fashioned to create a light-on-dark "stippled" effect across the finish's coarse surface.
