White with Color
There are two sides to every stone. One side may be light, while the other has more color. White stone has rusty colors on the back. How much you use for your project is totally up to you and your mason. As you will notice, some pictures have hardly any color showing and others have used alot.
|The two pictures to the left show the wonderful blend of colors in this mix.|
This is an example of that effect. White with color is using both sides of the stone to create a unique one-of-a-kind look You may chose to use only the lighter side or "turn out" more color.
The sample (picture #1, 2nd row) above has been diamond sawed top and bottom. The first picture is using the darkest and lightest color range of the stone. Thin Veneer cut stone would also have this wide variety of color since it is using both faces of the stone.
**Please remember that there are 2 "faces" to each stone. One side will be darker than the other side. You must tell your mason how much of the dark or light you want to show. Two identical walls one laid with a light side and one of the darker side will look totally different. (A third wall laid with 50-50 would look different than the first two)
Sometimes when you first receive your stone, it may look very light. This is most likely because the stone is dry and dusty, or the lighter colors are on top. Don't panic! Once the mason starts laying the stone, you will see all the color appear! Once you rinse the stone with the water the colors will change dramatically! Adding a sealer will make all stone appear darker. If you have an area that is muddy and/or the rain will splash mud on your new wall, adding a clear sealer will protect the stone from changing color.
**Note: Stone, being a product of nature, gives us a variety of color. Not every single stone sample will be exactly like the stone that you will receive. There will be slight variances in color. These differences are what make our stone so beautiful and interesting. Pictures on the website or our catolog may not be true colors. Camera and/or film type and time of day also changes the way the pictures reflect the stone and may distort the color.
** Please note: stone that has color added, as in artwork or address blocks etc, may fade or chip out if it is in the weather without being sealed. A water sealer or clear spray sealer will help protect the color and give it longer life. We do apply a thin sealer before the piece leaves the quarry. This usually needs to be repeated as needed. We do not guarantee the life span of the painted stone surface.
