Basalt pavers for residential and commercial needs
A popular choice of natural stone for residential and commercial clients. Basalt paving slabs are highly attractive and extremely functional because they can be used as decor features or simply for non-skid flooring – and even then, it will make any indoor or outdoor space look good. Contact Bernini Stone & Tiles for more information or visit our store today for assistance.
Basalt is a class of igneous rock created from magma(liquid volcanic matter), that reaches the earth’s surface as lava. Due to its proximity to the surface, basalt cools fast resulting in a stone that is much more porous than granite, giving it a matte finish and making it vulnerable to acidic products and liquids.
Basalt is generally black, grey or charcoal. Characteristics include pin holes, veins, groups of holes, (often referred to as “cat’s paws”), sometimes brown shading due to oxidisation or iron content, and in some cases white calcium inclusions.
Basalt pavers provide an understated luxury and elegance to any setting. A simple product of Mother Nature has become a feature in many homes, offices and hotels across the world. Each of these settings call for unique textures and finishes, and basalt can deliver on each one.

Basalt is a grey charcoal colour, which stems from its lava makeup. If you look closely you will see that it gives off a slight sparkle, allowing its unique appearance to shine through.
