– standard and proprietary finishes
The Cutting Edge of Natural Stone Finishes
Our comprehensive suite of finishes 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.

A semi-rough surface, this finish is textured to reveal vibrant colors in a deep, rich background.
A heavy water pressure treatment reveals the radiant crystals within the stone’s surface through a dramatically course texture.
This hone finish dramatically highlights the stone’s crystal structure while deepening its background hues.
Available only on limestone, this non-reflective, smooth finish draws out the stone’s natural colors and variations.
Accentuated with light swirls, the natural traits of the stone are masked by this process to understate its customary characteristics.
This limestone finish is non-reflective and mutes the stone’s natural traits to create subtle contrasts and highlights.
This finish highlights the stone’s vibrant colors and crystals through a smooth surface textured in soft waves.
A consistent, coarse-textured surface that exposes the natural beauty of the stone’s crystals on a pronounced jagged background.

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.
The process of sawing leaves slight grooves, swirl marks and lines on the stone’s surface, softening its natural traits.
