Early morning dew and shadows really highlight the beauty of our stone and the craftsmanship of the installation on this chimney.  A floor to ceiling interior fireplace will soon be completed as well, which will also feature some large granite elements.

Custom Fieldstone Blend

July 13, 2020

This project in Mansfield, MA is an on site blend of our Antique Rounded Fieldstone® and Connecticut Valley Fieldstone®. The contractor installed Thin Veneer, Full sized Antique Rounds and 3-5" Full Bed Veneer. We love these creative blends, they offer the owners a more unique look that's not just a "cookie cutter" pattern. This project is a definite A plus! Please look for more photos in our Pr​oject Gallery once work is completed.

Take a look at this fresh installation of our Celtic Granite ® Thin Veneer.

Celtic Granite is part of our Contemporary Granite Collection ™ and is also available in Ashlar, Ledge, Mosaic and Rustic Mix patterns.

The Sq/Rec pattern on this project looks very stately and the color compliments the reclaimed granite that was used for the mantle nicely. Color is further enhanced by utilizing True Tone MC-89 Charcoal mortar color (which we also supply, along with Firebrick, Refractory mortars, Cast Iron Throat Dampers and Outside Air Kits and Ash Dumps ).
