Diamond Sawn

A diamond sawn finish is achieved by cutting the stone with a circular diamond tipped saw blade. The appearance is lighter, achieves a slip resistant finish and is well suited to external paving areas. Diamond sawn is a popular finish as the end result shows the full spectrum of colour tones and character within the natural stone itself.
