Marble has been valued throughout history for its unique beauty, relative homogeneity and appearance that does not change with the direction in which it lies, known as “isotropy.” Marble allows light to actually penetrate its surface, sometimes by several millimetres before scattering, giving marble a unique “waxy” appearance. Marble & Limestone has been used in sculpturing, construction, flooring, wall cladding and work surfaces for many centuries and remains as desirable, relevant and fashionable today.

Characteristics & Specifications
Pitting and Veining is a natural and is expected in stone worktops
With stone worktops small fissures are common; blemishes and flaws are formed in the stone when cooling in the earth’s surface
Slate, marble and limestone have various different veins, markings and patterns and every piece is unique
Stone worktop joints are finished with a small ariss to the top edge. Silicone sealant is applied to prevent water ingression.
Due to thermal expansion granite can expand up to 1mm per metre.
Overhangs and supports
Any overhang extending more than 300mm must be supported.
Granite is highly scratch resistant but not scratch proof.
Slate, marble and limestone are much softer than granite and greater care must be taken to avoid scratches to the surfaces
The stone will be sealed in the factory but it is possible to stain it with such things as wine or grease. It is recommended that the worktop must be re-sealed every 6 months to help reduce the risk of any damage to your worktops. Bluestone sell care & maintenance kits which clean, seal, and maintain your granite worktops to the very highest standard.
Extra labour will be required on any worktops over 120kg. This will be supplied at no cost to bluestone-uk.com
