Lime Stone - Stones used by Celtic Stonework

Lime Stone

Lime Stone is a cost-effective stone which if used correctly can give a up-market or Boutique look.

A very under used stone, we at Celtic Stonework mainly use two types, both are different in look and make-up.
Te Kuiti lime stone and Lime stone from a private quarry in Pirongia (Te pahu).

  • Te Kuiti Lime Stone is modular or uniform block shape. Its colour is a light cream with light grey stone mixed with in it. (see sample panel).
  • Pirongia Lime Stone is an irregular and more random shape, its colour has an orange tint and a darker cream look than the Te Kuiti stone, it sometimes also shows a vain running through it.

Both are ideal for the Spanish, Italian, Mediterranean look or even a Mexican look. Both go well with wrought iron.

Both can be laid as a dry stack or full mortar joint (See sample panels) these panels can be viewed at our yard in Pirongia by appointment.
