Etna Lavastone

Quarried from the slopes of Mount Etna, this lavastone (basalt) is an incredible new material for the contemporary specifier, with many internal and external applications.

Due to its versatility (it will withstand extreme heat) the stone can be finished in a much wider range of  surface textures, colours and tones than other stones. It can be honed, polished, bushammered etc. in the normal way, but also baked (refired) to create a jet black lustre. In addition to this, the lavastone can be glazed which results in vast possiblities of colour finishes that can be applied to slabs and also 3-dimensional lavastone forms.

FORMATS & FINISHES:

Etna Lavastone is a dimension stone, cut initially as a block from the quarry, then sliced with diamond saw into slabs which can then be further cut into the required final size format.

Etna Grey (natural finish without re-firing)
Etna ReFired Black (smooth ‘la Nera’)
Etna ReFired Black (textured ‘la Roccia’)
Etna *Glass Fusion (screen printed with recycled powdered glass).

NOTE: *Glass fusion can be applied to both ‘ReFired’ Black (smooth) and ‘Grey’ Etna Lavastone.
