Bluestone Color Variations: Nature at Its Finest

Yes, bluestone has blue in its name, but its color can embrace those true blues or expand beyond all blue. The variety of options available make bluestone mix seamlessly into multiple scenarios from contemporary to classic.

There are three main types of high-quality bluestone options we work with:

  • Thermal - This is the most refined in appearance and is heat-treated. It represents two shades of blue, occasionally a third.

  • Natural Cleft, Blue/Blue - This bluestone is a bit more rustic in appearance than thermal and represents two shades of blue.

  • Natural Cleft, Full Range - This bluestone is the most rustic in appearance, providing substantial color variations, including blues, grays, ochres, and rusts.
It’s an unmistakable look that is earthy and distinguished.
