Natural Stone Edge Finishes

The stone edge finish is the final surface applied to the face of dimension stone during fabrication. Below are examples.

Rocked Edge

Rocked edges are achieved by hand-trimming the edge of natural stone stairs or fireplace hearths. This example is thermal bluestone with a rocked edge.
