Polished Finish

This is the most common finish where the stone appears smooth and shiny.

The stone can appear darker and highlights the colour and crystal structures in it more prominently.

A polished finish does seal or close more pores on the surface of the stone which helps to repel any moisture,
and therefore makes it easier to keep clean.

 

Honed Finish

A Honed finish is still smooth to the touch but simply without the shine of a full gloss polish.

It appears more natural looking, with the colour and patterns being “softer” looking.

 

Leathered Finish

The Leathered finish takes stone to a new level of uniqueness.

It is similar to the honed finish but has a textured or leathered feel to the touch,
whilst still highlighting the characteristics and colour of the stone.
