It can be used on floors and walls in, for example, bathrooms, kitchens or hallways. Some varieties are also suitable outdoors around a pool or on a patio. 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 For the past 200 years, it has been replaced by materials such as bricks and cement products.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.

Floors and walls in hallways, kitchens and bathrooms.

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.

Södervange matt honed

Södervange is a fantastic limestone from Gotland! A sand beige limestone with a vibrant pattern and red fossils that emphasize the stone's life. The stone is quarried, honed and brushed in the same limestone quarry as Norrvange. Södervange is quarried in a narrow strip higher up in the rock where the shade is more red, hence its red fossil elements.

Suitable as:

Floors and walls in hallways, kitchens and bathrooms. Works outdoors, for example in gardens and on a patio.

Frost resistant.

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.
