CRAZY PAVING STONE
In any project in which an outdoor space has to be filled, the customer’s idea is reaching a natural combination between architecture and the surrounding nature.
An ideal option is the use of the crazy paving stone. Rocks quarried in boulders and split manually to create irregular random tiles usable in both outdoor paving and wall cladding.
Each country has its geological sources, from limestone or sandstone to basalt, gneiss, andesite…Here in Spain they are Quartzite quarries.
Quartzite is a metamorphic rock, when high temperatures and pressures produce the formation of a consistent rock composed almost entirely of quartz from the original sandstone. Pure quartzite is the most weather-resistant rock available, due to its high compressive and abrasion resistance, its non-porous features, hardness, uniformity and strength that makes it completely adequate for exterior applications.
As visual properties, the Spanish quartzite has vivid colors, uniform or mixed, with a glossy pattern due to the presence of quartz grains. Is rough to the touch but leveled, with irregular shapes, as are not off cut material.
Deep blue background quartzite. It is the most common and presents a deep blue background with bursts of soft changes of color and glossy points of quartz crystals.
BLUE SAPHIRELight blue background quartzite. It presents a light blue background mixed with tiles of other color gradations.
Deep blue quartzite with presence of ocher-gold-brown mineral color inserts on some of the edges.
Light blue quartzite with an occurrence of ocher-gold-brown mineral color inserts on some of the edges.
Deep brown flagstones turning to bronze-blue colors.
Light brown quartzite turning to bronze-blue colors.
Being splited in irregular flagstone its classification is made by number of pieces per m2, from 3-5 pieces per m2 to 9-12 pieces per m2.
An important issue is the availability of big pieces for stone pathways, using these pieces on type Japanese gardens.
