Why Choose Bluestone Paving?
Also known as basalt, bluestone is one of the oldest and most abundant minerals in the earth’s crust. Born from volcanic rock, Bluestone has naturally occurring black and grey fine grains that embellish the material’s uniform colours and shades.
As a paving material, Bluestone is extremely durable, environmentally friendly and visually appealing.
When you’re looking for a sturdy material that can create a consistent and stunning style for both indoor and outdoor environments, consider bluestone pavers from Premier Pavers & Stone.

How Does Bluestone Paving Vary?
Bluestone is generally uniform in colour. There may be some variance in colour, or ‘veins’, but these will be in only the minority of your pavers.
Bluestone does have aero marks (sometimes called ‘cat paw’ marks). These are small holes in the stone that were formed when the lava that creates Bluestone cools from liquid to solid. Any air trapped in the molten rock means that these aero marks will be present when the rock solidifies.
In a crate of Bluestone pavers, approximately 15% to 20% of the pavers will have aero marks. If you love the appearance of these aero marks, please let us know and we will include more of these distinctive pavers in your delivery.
If you don’t like aero marks, we can remove the pavers that have these features from your order, within reason.
