Derived of beautiful colors from sunrises to sunsets, our sandstone is versatile and reliable.  Its beautiful colors are a mixture of brown, gray, rose, cream, buff, ivory, pink, tan, yellow, beige, white, red, gold, and rust.  A practical stone, its color symbolizes the warmth of a heritage as colorful and beautiful as America itself.  Hearths, mantles, treads, coping, sills, risers and flooring are examples of uses of this practical stone.
