Petit Granite Abbaye
Limestone — Belgium
A newly quarried blue limestone with black tonality, minimal veins and very little variation. It comes in a variety of finishes, making it incredibly versatile for a variety of spaces and styles.
A History of Quality
The singular and sparkling Petit Granite Abbaye is an authentic Belgian bluestone from Ouffet, a municipality of Wallonia in the province of Liège. Deposits of this particular type of limestone, found exclusively in Belgium, are distinguished by their consistent blue-black coloration, prominent fossilization and calcite veining. It’s an increasingly rare material quarried in remote locations throughout the region. As such, excavation and transportation can be quite complex and labor-intensive. Expert stonemasons work with absolute precision, meticulously checking each block for quality, authenticity and appropriate coloring. Once fabricated, individual sections are finished by hand in various surface textures that capture the essential spirit of antique stone.

Because of the individualized nature of the materials we sell, many of the products have significant variation in size, shape, color, texture and thickness. These irregularities are inherent in hand-made and natural materials such as ours. It is the responsibility of the owner/purchaser and those acting on behalf of the owner such as the designer, architect, contractor or installer to verify that the material specified is appropriate for its final application and to review and approve all materials before the materials are shipped. Samples are available on request. Samples are given as an indication of a particular product and are for reference only. Due to the inherent variation in the size, shape, thickness, texture and color of our materials, individual samples cannot be considered exact representations.
Through expert photography, every effort has been made to faithfully represent our products and materials on this website. However, due to lighting and color variations, no picture can be considered an exact representation of the material being shown.
