The Brandy Crag quarry is situated just above Coniston Village, within the Coniston Coppermines Valley and has been worked since the middle of the 19th Century. Brandy Crag is a grey stone, often highlighted by contrasting veins which emphasise its natural origins. Architects and designers around the world have long taken advantage of its natural beauty, durability and adaptability to create classic weather resistant details and surface finishes. The richness of Brandy Crag makes it ideal for use in interior furniture and fittings, whether in traditional or modern design schemes.
A smooth finish with a slight sheen. This can be applied to both faces and edges of the stone and can be applied to complex shapes and sloping faces.
A textured finish applied with a high pressure oxygen-propane lance. This can only be applied to a flat face and not available on edges,
complex shapes or sloping faces. If finished edges are required we would offer Honed, Sanded, Gritblasted or for a rougher more natural alternative we would offer a Plucked edge.
A high-pressure airline projects coarse-grained abrasives, giving a regular non slip finish.
A similar finish to honed but with greater slip-resistance.
The top surfaces of sawn slabs are coarsely diamond sanded to produce a non slip finish.
The top surfaces of sawn slabs are pneumatically tooled to produce a grooved or pitted surface..
