Different Finishings

Polished

A shiny surface that highlights the natural colour and characteristics of the stone (the grain, veins, etc). It is completely flat and smooth, giving an air of nobility and refinement, and revealing all the beauty and the strength of the natural stone.

Honed

A soft, totally flat smooth finish, which shows off the true colour of the stone without the shine and detail of the polished finish. Very much in vogue at present, this finish is considered to be very welcoming and comfortable.

Combed/Trawl

The combed finish is one of the most expensive kinds of finish available. Unique in the effect that it gives the stone, this solution requires a special cutting machine and takes longer to produce.

Sandblasted

The sandblast finish is non-slip, quite rough and flat enough to be suitable for flooring.It is not as rough as the bush-hammered finish but more irregular to the touch than the brushed. It also shows up the original colour of the stone more than the bush-hammered, though less than the brushed.

Bush-hammered

The bush-hammered finish is non-slip and particularly suitable for outdoor paving and sidings. With its rough surface, bush-hammered material is flat enough to be used, as it often is, for paving. It should be noted that this kind of finish dulls the colour of materials, slightly fading them.

Sawn

After the blocks have been extracted from the quarries, they are cut into slabs typically 1cm, 2cm or 3cm thick, except for when they are destined for outdoor use or in other situations where they need to be thicker.
The sawn or rough finish is exactly what these slabs have when they have just come from the sawmill.

Flamed

Produced by exposing the stone to high temperatures, it should be noted that not all materials may be flamed. The flamed finish is flat enough to be used for paving, though there will be slight irregularities and a certain amount of flaking on the surface. Unique in its effect, the flamed finish makes surfaces non-slip while at the same time dulling the original colour of the material and creating different kinds of relief on the surface.

Brushed

This non-slip finish is not smooth to the touch, but is still completely suitable for flat flooring. With a fairly rough surface, though considerably smoother than the sandblasted finish, this is a very popular finish amongst designers around the world. Indeed, the surface allows the original colour of the stone to be seen, while at the same time giving it a non-slip surface.

Split-Face

With its irregular surface, this kind of finish is not suitable for flooring, but rather for veneers that need to be beautiful and durable. For split-face surfaces, a thickness of at least 5cm thick is required, since part of it will be broken with the tools, leaving the material only 3cm thick.
