Atherton

Atherton has been used as a paving or walling surface as far back as the Roman era.  The Romans used it because it had a naturally flat, durable surface and the stone was easy to quarry.

Traditional Atherton is a variable thickness stone.  It’s a type of granite that has naturally extruded through the earth’s crust.  Unlike most granites, it fissured in layers due to seismic activity.  These fissures caused cooling in the formation, further causing larger crystals to form around smaller crystals, giving the stone its unique appearance and texture.

Atherton has a natural beauty that cannot be attained using man-made materials like concrete pavers or brick. Its natural texture provides the right amount of texture. Its hardness and durability provide lifetimes of use and ensure lower maintenance costs than other materials
