TYPES OF FINISHES


Polished
Polished finishes are glossy and very reflective. They intensify color and geologic activity. Crystalline stones like marble and granite take polish best.

Honed
Honed is a form of polishing that works for non-crystalline stone like limestone and travertine.

Textured
Textured finishes use a tumbled-process to create an old and rustic look.

Bush Hammered
Bush hammered finishes are beaten with a hammer whose face is cut in points to create a rough surface texture.

Cleft-stone
Cleft-stone is split instead of cut with a saw.
