Description

Product Details

We are proud to be able to offer another great British Stone, from Albion Stone.

Extracted by Albion Stone from the quarry / mine on the Island of Portland, in Dorset, Fancy Beach limestone is a hard-wearing, creamy white limestone, which is perfect for use in a paving, flooring or cladding project. Fancy Beach is a lively bed of Portland Stone with a mixture of shell, openness, inclusions and small fossil and has been used on the National Maritime Museum.

Portland Stone was formed at the end of the Jurassic period, around 145 million years ago when what is now Portland, was much closer to the equator than it is today.  Subsequently, the Fancy Beach limestone has a moderately high shell content.

Key Features

  • Each pack contains 50 units of 400mm x 400mm x 30mm, 50 units of 400mm x 200mm x 30mm and 50 units of 200mm x 190mm x 30mm.
  • The Pack allows for a repeating pattern to be laid and covers an area of 14.8m2 (including a recommended 10mm joint gap).  Without a joint gap, the pack covers an area of 13.9m2.
  • Please view the Questions section below for recommendations in laying this material.
  • Extremely hard wearing due to the durability of the limestone.
  • Stunning aesthetic beauty of the natural stone.
  • Shell Distribution:  Random placement of predominantly grey shell with small voids throughout the slab in conjunction with areas of random dense stone matrix.
  • Texture:  Varied texture is evident across the slab. Tight, uniform areas are adjacent to areas of openness and concentrated inclusions. The stone should be considered lively.
  • Colour:  Typical Portland colour - creamy/white mellowing to grey/white.  Note: Large areas of grey shell can slightly darken the overall appearance.
