Colonial Schist Stone Profile

Introduction to Colonial Schist

The Colonial Schist stone profile presents the random and rugged edges that are so typical of traditional New Zealand schist. The textures have been moulded directly from native schist of the Central South Island, and the colours have been developed specifically to match those subtle shades found around that region.

The Colonial Schist stone profile comes in a variety of shapes and sizes from 100 to 450mm with the average thickness being 30mm.
