FINISHES

Tumbled - This finish is honed with an added look of age and distress. This finish is available only in tile. The edges of the tile are worn; either chipped or rounded. It is purposely made to look old and weathered. This look is achieved by placing pieces of stone together with sand in a tumbler-a machine that spins bring about this effect.

Polished - The surface is a glossy and smooth. The high gloss finish is made possible because of the crystals found in natural stones. No waxes or chemicals are used to achieve this natural polished look. The polish is achieved by first grinding the stone with abrasives and ultimately finer grit polishing powders until the crystal facets on the surface are flat across.

Honed - The surface has little or no sheen and is smooth. Unlike polished stone, fine powder abrasives are not used to create this finish. Instead coarser abrasives smooth the surface yet leaving the surface with a matte, non polished finish. When choosing a honed finish, it is very important that you remember honed finish will require more daily maintenance than polished finishes. Metal marks, fingerprints and other signs of daily living will show on honed material. Most of these marks can be removed with some effort or by using a stone color enhancer. Please note that abrasive marks are generally noticeable on the surface of honed surfaces.
