Bluestone is an unusual stone. There are similar looking stones that crop up stretching from Ireland, into Belgium where it is incredibly popular and across to the middle east.
I must refer to a geologist on this one but like other carboniferous deposits such as coal it originates where there were peat bogs and plant foliage in abundance. When it is cut, like other black, blue and grey stones it releases a smell like bad eggs.
That aside it makes a most appealing black flagstone finish and the perfect hardwearing kitchen floor. It is good an alternative to black slate and will have natural sheen in contrast to the slate.
It is suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, showers and flooring of any nature.
Limestone tiles are much easier to maintain than many would have you believe. It is advisable not to use traditional bathroom cleaners and scourers, but instead a mild ph soap. There are specialist soaps available such as Easy Care but many supermarkets now supply a Marseilles type soap for use on natural materials such as limestone, marble and wood.
