Indian sandstone, the perfect natural stone choice
Indian sandstone is a very popular material for using as paving as it is hard wearing, easy to cut, great looking, fade resistant and it offers a huge range of different styles and natural colouration options. Each slab is unique and will often show distinctive markings, splashes of colour, minor imperfections, mineral deposits and even the occasional fossil. Sandstone is also available in a huge range of different shades, with core colours of grey, buff, cream and brown very popular alongside subtle contrasting shades of pinks, oranges, reds and blacks. All of these elements give sandstone paving it’s unique and original appeal, with no two slabs ever being exactly the same.
For this reason, any photography is as close a representation to the paving as possible however they may differ from the images shown.

It’s also important to note that the batches of the same product may change over time due to quarrying different seams of the rock.
