Stone type: Larvikite (Monzonite)
Origin: Crafted 300 million years ago in Larvik, Norway.
LUNDHS Ocean® has a green-grey background with small bluish feldspar crystals. The stone has a homogenous appearance and is an excellent material for larger projects.

A high gloss polished surface is created by using diamond abrasives followed by polishing powders. This finish gives the surface brightness and a mirror-like effect that intensifies the stone colour and enhances the lustrous feldspar crystals.
A honed surface is achieved by the use of diamond abrasives, but the polishing process stops at an earlier stage compared to the polished surface. The honed surface has a smooth, non-reflective surface - ideal when a more matte look is desired.
A silk/brushed finish is formed by means of metal brushes that take away the softest particles of the stone. This gives a lightly structured surface with the same gloss as a honed finish and is very smooth to touch. The finish makes the stone appear slightly lighter than a polished surface.
A caress surface (Tenax trademark) is similar to a silk/brushed finish with a slightly structured surface, but the gloss level is close to ta high gloss polished surface.
A flamed surface is produced by applying a high-temperature flame to the surface of the stone which creates thermal shock and causes the inherent crystals to fracture. This results in a very light, textured surface ideal for external use when low slip resistance and no reflection is a requirement. When exposed to water or liquids, the original colour and crystals appears.
A waterjet finish is created by applying a high-pressured jet of water across the surface of the stone. This erodes the surface and opens the pores in the stone, resulting in a rough surface similar to the flamed finish. The waterjet finish enhances the character and colour of the stone and causes less whitening. Ideal when you want a surface with low friction keeping as much as possible of the natural colour of the stone.
