Beneath the Surface

A History of Quality

Reclaimed Petit Granite has a beautiful weathered surface, consistent dark gray coloration and a fascinating backstory. It was originally used during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries as ballasts onboard Belgian shipping vessels. Perfectly cut squares of this hardy limestone were laid out in vast grids to help stabilize the weight of the ships while sailing. After reaching their destinations in Indonesia, the stones would be offloaded and replaced with spices and other cargo before returning to Belgium. The discarded ballasts were subsequently used to construct pathways and streets by resourceful locals. Though salvaged Petit Granite is increasingly rare, quarries of this distinctive limestone are still active throughout Belgium today.

Variation disclaimer

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.
