Minoan limestone is quarried near Demre, Antalya in Turkey.
This limestone is a predominantly white limestone with light grey and oatmeal coloured speckles throughout. It is arguably our most consistent and uniform limestone.
Its uniformity is what allows it to be such a favourite with many architects and designers and this is a perfect choice if you are looking for a clean and clinical limestone for your fireplace.
There are very few fossils and veins, however the stone does feature very small holes throughout which are filled by our masons during manufacture.
We endeavour to cut all fireplace components from the same block of limestone where possible however like all natural stones, Minoan is subject to variations in veining, pattern and colour, even within the same batch.
