Bleu Chinois Aged
Limestone — Asia
This beautiful, black-brown limestone is incredibly versatile. Its softly distressed finish and chiseled edges provide a weathered, contemporary look suitable in both modern and traditional interiors.
A History of Quality
The deep, rich tones of Bleu Chinois Aged are characteristic of the limestone specific to the areas within Asia where it’s sourced. The beautiful, dark-blue coloration is due to its unique composition of certain chemical compounds and minerals. Formed over millions of years, this limestone is found throughout the quarries interspersed with deposits of various other natural stones, such as marble and quartzite. This means that the process of block extraction can be quite complex and labor-intensive. Expert stonemasons work with absolute precision, meticulously checking each block for quality, authenticity, density and appropriate coloring. Once fabricated, individual sections are aged by hand in various textured finishes that capture the essential spirit of antique stone.
