Limestone - a durable and genuin material

Nordic limestone is available in a wide palette of colors and patterns. From sand beige and grey-brown to rust red. It can be used on floors and walls in, for example, bathrooms, kitchens or hallways. Some varieties are also suitable outdoors. Below you can find inspiration and read about our fantastic limestone varieties.

Limestone

Limestone is a rock type that mainly consists of the substance calcite as well as remains from corals and shells. In Sweden and around the Baltic Sea, limestone was formed over 500 million years ago. In Sweden, limestone has been used as building material for over 1500 years. The stone was used for entire buildings, both on the inside and for the outside. For the past 200 years, it has been replaced by materials such as bricks and cement products. Today, the production of limestone as a building material is relatively small and small-scale. Most of the limestone deposits are used for the production of cement, where the substance calcite is extracted.

Öland limestone

The Öland limestone has been an important part of the supply on Öland for more than 1500 years, where stonework used to be combined with animal husbandry and fishing. Öland limestone adorns many historic buildings around Sweden and Europe. The limestone was quarried in several places on Öland, but the quarries that are still active are Gillberga and Horns cape. The Öland limestone is a Swedish classic. From the elegant and exclusive Öland Red and Gårdsblandning to the fossil-rich and beautiful gray Hors limestone.

The Gotland limestone

400 million years ago, Sweden was close to the equator and Gotland was then a tropical island with a coral reef environment. The island was in a warm ocean with many animal species, species that are now found as fossils in our floor and wall tiles! There are several types of limestone on Gotland: Hoburgsmarmor, Södervange, Norrvange, Kappelshamn and Snäckers. The Gotland limestone is popular for its warm and bright colors, and its clear fossils.

Norrvange matt honed

A beautiful limestone from northern Gotland, with a truly individual character. A mild, sandy-grey limestone with warm hues. Matt honed with a smooth surface. This is a stone that really does match everything and which is ideal for use both indoors and out. Many others have tried to copy Norrvange’s color and feel, but this is the real deal. Quarried, cut and polished by Slite Stenhuggeri Ltd, who have been working with stone since 1907. Also available as brushed

Honed or brushed treatment?

Our stones are offered with, among other things, honed and brushed treatment. Honed simply means that the stone is honed with a certain grain size on the grinding tools. It gets a matte and nice surface that is easy to maintain. Brushed limestone means that the sawn boards are brushed with a steel brush. It is a traditional method where you get a natural texture in the stone, but at the same time a smooth and very durable surface when you get rid of loose elements in the stone.
Which surface treatment you choose affects the feeling in the room. A honed stone creates a calm and sober feeling. Whilst a brushed stone might be interpreted as more rustic, thanks to its structured surface.

Grey Borghamn limestone planed

A light grey fantastic limestone with tones of green, from the shores of Lake Vättern in Östergötland. The planed surface has a discrete marbling and a raw tone which gives a minimalistic, almost Japandi feeling. Planed stone gets a very beautiful patina over time. This stone works just as well in the kitchen as in the hallway. Also available as honed and brushed

Suitable as:

Floors in hallways, kitchens and bathrooms.

Not frost resistant.
