More on natural stone types:

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock, resistant to weathering, which makes an excellent building material. Natural Stones has a large range of sandstone products available, from riven cladding to sandstone chunks in various colours. Sandstone products suitable for indoor and outdoor use are available.

Slate is a fine grained homogeneous metamorphic rock, derived from an original shale-type sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash through low grade metamorphism. The rich colours of slate and the durability make it an excellent material for cladding and tiles. Slate products are sourced from the best quarries with very stringent quality assurance processes in place.

Quartzite is a hard metamorphic rock that is extremely durable and very suitable for cladding products. Ultimate Stones is considered the leading installer of quartzite cladding in South Africa.
