The wide range of colors and textures that can only occur in a material that is manufactured by nature demonstrates why the beauty of stone has inspired artists and architects, alike, for hundreds of years.

Stone naturally occurs in an amazing variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and textures. That, in conjunction with its ability to be manipulated by man through various finishing processes such as tumbling, honing, or polishing, gives it a versatility and appeal to satisfy virtually every taste!

As a building material for outdoor fireplaces, stone has no equal.  It is extremely durable and virtually maintenance-free.  It  is  designed  to withstand the harshest of elements with minimal wear. Frequent exposure to sun and rain will not fade or discolor it. As it weathers over time, its beauty and character are only enhanced.
