Fire and Stone Go Hand in Hand

The words fire and stone go together like a river and water.  As long as fire has been used, so to has it been accompanied by stone.  The variety of stone fireplace designs is endless, but the best material choice is simple and standard.  Today, the use of “real stone” has been reinvented. Stoneyard.com takes these natural stones and sorts, splits, and saws them into Thin Veneer. This process makes the stone easier to install, deliver, and handle.



Round Stone Veneer has the irregular outside shapes of a smooth yet irregular mosaic pattern, with the depth and impact of rounded stones.  Its rustic qualities lend themselves well to an Old-World style.  Its natural face shows the weathered exterior of the stone.  Round is the most traditional New England shape making it the perfect choice for your next fireplace project.


Whether you are constructing a new fireplace or covering existing brick, know that natural stone is timeless. Choosing the Boston Blend Round Thin Veneer to be centered in the heart of your home will truly warm your family for generations to come.
