Bluestone tiles and bluestone pavers are a stone tile. Bluestone is a well known stone in Australia. Many buildings during our pioneering days were built from it. Known for it’s hardness and ruggedness it is only natural that bluestone is now used to make bluestone tiles. For that cool look around spas, swimming pools, patios as well as hallways and kitchens you can’t go far wrong with bluestone.
Bluestone is a Basalt. A grey to black volcanic rock. Basalt is usually fine grained, due to rapid cooling of lava on the Earth’s surface. All bluestone tiles are sawn from large boulders and the surface then differently finished as listed. Bluestone offers an excellent hard durable surface offering good scratch and slip resistance. Ideal for all commercial, home, internal and external applications.
For external use you may want to consider Bluestone Pavers which are made thicker than bluestone tiles. Tiles can be used but they require a much firmer base such as concrete.
