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.
We recommend ordering a sample of the material prior to placing an order. You can do so by clicking here.
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.
Our Minoan limestone fireplace suites include an fireplace surround, backpanel and hearth of your choice. For simplicity we have chosen the size of the backpanel and hearth to suit the size and proportions of the fireplace surround so please check the dimensions are compatible with your requirements.
Your fireplace suite is made up of a number of different components and it is important to ensure that your installer has the required qualifications and necessary experience to fit each of the components.
