Sandstone Arches

Our Products

Colorado Rose provides stone from the Lyons Formation in Colorado, a hard, low absorptive quartzite sandstone. It is extremely resistant to freeze/thaw cycles and has a skid resistant natural cleft. Its subtle variations in color provide a visual texture that enhances any application. On floors and outdoor walkways, it may be used in random flagstone or precut modular squares. On walls, it performs equally well either in conventional ashlar veneer or as vertical cladding. We also provide a variety of dimensions and surfaces for paving, curbstones, capstones, dry-laid or mortared walls, and stair treads. Please call or e-mail to request a detailed price list.

Large Flagstone

Flagstone

Flagstone ranges in thicknesses from extremely thin (less than 7/8 inch) up to 2-1/4-inch steppers. It comes in randomly shaped pieces, and is available in small (steppers), medium, and large surface dimensions, and in three thicknesses: 1 inch to 1-1/4 inches; 1-1/4 inches to 1-3/4 inches; and 1-3/4 inches to 2-1/4 inches. We are the only quarry that will ship flagstone in vertically arranged palettes for easy sorting and extraction.

Cut Pavers

Cut Pavers

Cut pavers are available with snap cut edges from 1-1/4" to 2-1/4" thick, and saw cut from 1" to 2-1/4" thick. Standard snap-cut pavers are available in six-inch increments from 12" by 12" to 24" by 24". Standard saw-cut pavers are available in two-inch increments from 4" by 4" to 24" by 24". Other sizes are available by special order up to 84" by 84".

Cobblestone

Cobblestone Pavers

Cobblestone pavers are cut from hand-spit flagstone in thicknesses that range from 2 to 4 inches. Snap cut pavers are 4 inches wide and range in length from 5 to 10 inches. Tumbled pavers are available in 4, 8, and 12-inch widths and vary in length from 5 to 12 inches.

Cut Face Drywall

Drywall Stone

Colorado Rose drywall sandstone is perfect for landscaping applications, including retaining walls, steps, and "natural" free-standing walls.

Quarry Run Drywall ranges in size from 8 by 12 inches to 16 by 20 inches in thicknesses 2 inches and up.

Cut Face Drywall (pictured at left) has one cut face, to provide a smooth exterior face in a retaining wall or a step riser.

Garden Wall Stone also has a cut face, but is smaller in dimension (1/2 to 1-1/2 square foot by 1 to 3 inches thick), making it suitable for the homeowner and do-it-yourselfer.

4-inch Ashlar Veneer

Ashlar Veneer Strips

Ashlar Veneer is available in 4-inch and 8-inch widths, both of which range in height from 1 to 10 inches and in length from 12 to 36 inches. The 4-inch strips are perfect as a facing over block, frame, or concrete walls. The 8-inch strips (also referred to as "dry stack wall stone") are sturdy enough for structural walls, dry laid or mortared. Both widths can also be tumbled to soften the edges. A special effect may be created by using our natural edge strips, which utilize the natural broken edge of the stone, with its random shape and coloring, to create a more interesting finish.

Coping Capstone

Coping, Capstones, Curbstones, and Stair Treads

Coping is available in random lengths, for topping walls and trimming around the edges of pools and water features. It comes in 12-, 14-, 16-, 18-, and 24-inch widths in random thicknesses from 1-1/4" to 2-1/4". Heavier coping is available by special order.

Capstones are thicker pieces of specified length, for topping walls and other architectural and landscape features. They are available in thicknesses from 2-1/4" to 12" in specified sizes. Availability of thicker pieces may be limited.

Stone curbs offer an attractive alternative to concrete. Used in conjunction with random coping and snap-cut pavers, they can replace ordinary concrete curb, gutter, and sidewalks. They offer the advantage that they can be removed and replaced as needed for maintenance or modification. Curbstone is cut to order.

Stone stair treads can create natural indigenous-looking stairways in landscapes, or grand formal staircases around patios and plazas. Stair treads are cut to order.
