lava stone, lavastoneLava stone and basalt are fine grained igneous rocks created through the rapid cooling of volcanic lava flows as they reach the earth's surface. Most basalts and lavastones used in construction are grey to black in colour and while some exhibit a 'frothy' appearance due to the gases contained in volcanic eruptions, others are very dense with no visible holes.

Lava stone and basalt are hard wearing, scratch and stain resistant making them extremely versatile, and suitable for a range of applications.

For landscapers and external applications, basalt and lavastone can take on a number of decorative, textured finishes suitable for paving, external wall cladding and water features. While for internal applications, basalt is experiencing renewed popularity as a floor tile, wall cladding and mosaics for feature walls as well as carved basins and baths

This kind of stone material has the special feature which other stone materials don't have for its special holes, such as sound absorption and insulation, heat insulation and reservation, frozen proof etc. It has good sightseeing effect for the continuous big and small holes, with primitive simplicity and elegant style. Every environmental test of this stone goes fine under very strict inspections, it's a green environmental building material. It also has features of sour and alkali proof, can be used in many areas. It was called the "breathing stone" and "Functional stone material" by the specialists in the stone industry.
