Bluestone is a timeless classic thanks to its great versatility and its technical features.
Bluestone is a compact dark limestone. The most famous are Kilkenny Limestone and Belgian Blue Stone. These materials have been used for centuries for indoor and outdoor applications. Due to its very dense structure and hardness, this limestone is ideally suited for kitchen worktops.
The remains of ancient carbon dioxide are what gives this natural stone its unique colour. Bluestone mainly varies in more or less prominent blue-grey hues.
