Finish Treatment

Thermaled –  The Thermal finish is produced by applying a high-temperature torch to the surface of the stone leaving a rough-textured finish.  Highly skid-resistant, this finish is an excellent choice for walking surfaces.
Honed – A smooth, satin surface without reflection, the Honed finish shows the full color of the stone. It is produced on the same equipment as a polished finish, however, the honing process ends prior to the buffing stage.
Polished (granites only) – The Polished finish is a highly reflective, mirror gloss finish. The full color, depth and crystal structure of the stone is visible. A polished finish seals surface pores and is therefore nearly impervious to chemical wear and weather.     

Edge Treatments

Pencil – A penciled edge resembles the end of a pencil eraser with a slight radius.
Chamfered – A chamfered edge is 45 ° cut into the edge of the stone. The deeper the cut, the wider the bevel face is.
Ease – This edge treatment is very common and offers a clean and simple look.   Easing an edge offers a square flat face with the sharp edge on top rounded slightly.  Sometimes, the eased edge is rounded enough to be called a quarter round edge.
Full or Half Bull-nose – The full bull-nose offers perhaps the most contemporary look.  A side view of full bull-nose shows the shape of a half circle. The full bull-nose is gentle on the body and has no edges to chip.  The half bull-nose edge can also be called the round-over because instead of being squared off, it is rounded over.
Rock Face –  A Rock Faced edge finish is produced by striking the stone surface with a chisel leaving a rough natural edge finish.
Thermal – The thermal finish is produced by applying a high-temperature torch to the surface of the stone leaving a rough-textured finish.
