From micro-marbles to conglomerates, we've sourced a total of seven different stones from across the world, each of which having their own unique qualities and characteristics. To help you get a feel for each stone, here's a break down of the varieties.


Micro-Marble



Micro-marble, although not completely natural, is formed from real marble, and has a much smoother and more even tone than its natural alternative. The marble is quarried, ground down to a fine texture and then reformed, along with a 2% resin mix for an even and flaw free appearance. The final product is a rich, vibrant colour with a flawless surface, making it ideal for cutting into a fireplace.

Conglomerates



Similar to our micro-marble stones, conglomerate stones are quarried, ground up and then reformed, along with a resin mix. Conglomerates differ however due to their texture, which often appears much more chunky then natural marble, giving it an even more organic and natural appearence. Much like a natural stone product, these stones will contain variations, with no two being completely alike.

Maintenance & Cleaning


Limestone Products

Limestone is a very porous material, meaning it will absorb moisture very quickly. For a general clean, it’s fine to simply use a cloth and water, but be sure to clean an entire section rather than patches, which can result in watermarks.

You may also wish to seal your limestone in order to better protect it. If this is the case, then we would recommend using Lithofin Stain Stop, which will give it a greater resistance against staining. It will however very slightly alter the appearance of the limestone, drying it and giving it a slight seen.

Also, be aware when choosing a sealant that some are for outside use only, so always double check before applying to your fireplace.


Marble and Conglomerates

Simply use soapy water to wash off dirt, or white spirit for sticky marks and harder stains. If the stain has penetrated into the stone, then unfortunately there is nothing that can remove it.

Note, you should NOT use washing up liquid, as this could damage the stone. Household polish however is fine.


Cast Iron

All cast iron products have the potential to rust easily unless the surface is protected. Regular applications of protective coatings will prevent this - Zebo, for example. Alternatively, they can be lightly oiled with WD40 or other suitable light oil.


Trims and frets

Most of our frets and trims are not made of solid brass, so a polish such as Peek – or any other non-abrasive cleaner – should be used. For solid brass frets and trims, abrasive cleaners such as Brasso or Duraglit should work just fine.

Note: Some trims and frets are lacquered and don't need polishing with chemicals - simply wipe with a damp cloth and buff up immediately with a dry soft cloth.
