Landscape grade. The basalt appearance is organic and natural with vesiculation more predominately featured in each paver.

When choosing Bamstone bluestone paving and tiles, it's important to understand the right grade of stone for your project and the natural vesiculation characteristsics that occur in Australian bluestone products. The term vesiculation refers to the natural markings within the stone, which were created when the lava cooled and degassed. These markings more commonly appear as round clusters of air bubbles, generally known as “cats paws” or in strips of veining known as “banding”. Vesiculation may also appear as broad irregular shapes. ​Bamstone supply bluestone paving and tiles in two grades; Standard grade and Landscape grade.
