When magma cools very quickly, it forms this natural stone: minerals do not have time to form. The result is a fine-grain stone. Basalt has a low porosity and a high hardness.
Basalt is a sturdy natural stone that proves its worth both indoors and outdoors. This type of stone is weather-resistant and can often be found outside, such as on terraces. This hard natural stone can be used as floor covering and wall cladding; there are hardly any limitations.
This natural stone is easy to finish. Basalt is suited for harder finishing methods (for outdoor use) and softer finishing methods (for indoor use).
- Polished: a glossy, reflective surface. The white spots, veins, nature and structure of fossils are striking, as are the colours.
- Flamed: enjoy a rough texture with glittering granules.
- Honed: a smooth, matte finish of your natural stone as a result of spraying and sanding.
