Bluestone, also called Basalt in Australia, is originally a volcanic stone composed mainly of mica, sand and feldspar. It is the most common type of natural stone throughout Australia simply because of unique and excellent features such as durability, longevity, colour stability and affordability.
Comparing with some other types of natural stone like granite which can have high moisture content, blue stone still maintains its color. This makes it a great option for paving and landscaping because it won’t stain over time.
Being hard and extremely dense, bluestone has a low water absorption rate. With finishes like sawn, flamed, honed and sandblasted, it provides a completely non-slip surface.
