Our Core Values:

    • Producing Premium High Quality Bluestone (Basalt). Moreover, we conduct frequent quality checks to ensure high consistency of colour and durability of our bluestone pavers and tiles.
    • Safe and ethical working environments. This includes fair wages for all employees. All our sites abide by the principles stipulated in the European Commission of Fair Work
    • Commitment to preserving the natural environment. This includes minimising our carbon footprint and reducing deforestation. Once a site has been depleted of Bluestone, Enviro Scientists and Naturalists are contracted to regenerate the quarry back to replicate the original untouched natural landscape.

The European Bluestone Difference:

Our Bluestone Pavers & Tiles:

  • Consistent in Colour & Texture. European Bluestone has a consistent colour and lustre – your stock is very predictable in appearance. In contrast, Chinese Bluestone generally distributes patchy and discoloured bluestone. Choosing Chinese Bluestone means that your end product will be more unpredictable in appearance.
  • European Bluestone is a denser grade of bluestone. As result, European Bluestone is stronger and less porous (therefore requiring less stone sealer).
  • Higher Salt Tolerant Rating. Consequently, this means customers can confidently use European Bluestone for salt water swimming pools as well as seaside properties where there is more salt in the air.
  • Better Quality Control. At European Bluestone Quarries, we ensure that our bluestone is quality checked before being exported.
  • Competitively Priced. Despite its luxurious quality, we also always ensure that our Bluestone is affordable.  As a result, retailers can provide a great quality bluestone and keeping their stock accessible for their customers.

 

The Bluestone (Basalt) Quarries:

  • Reliable and Readily Available. The Chinese government is closing down hundreds of quarries and implementing stricter control and exporting laws. Consequently, this means Chinese Bluestone is getting harder to obtain, and with the introduction of more demanding laws, makes the future of Chinese Bluestone uncertain. At European Bluestone Quarries, we are fortunate to experience a lot less obtrusion from the government. Therefore, we have more predictability and stability across all our quarries in Europe.
  • No Oxidisation Issues (Unlike Chinese Bluestone).
  • Better Working Conditions. Unfortunately, many quarries and warehouses around the world (particularly in China and East Asian regions), compromise their employees’ well-being. These sites are typically unregulated, unsafe and employees are severely underpaid. At All European Bluestone, our quarries and warehouses are properly run by highly trained staff. We ensure our employees all have great working conditions where they are not overworked, are in a safe environment and are paid fairly.
  • Ethical & Sustainable.  European Bluestone Quarries ensure that all bluestone quarries and manufacturing plants have as little impact on the natural environment as possible. Contrary to many Chinese bluestone quarries which do not uphold any environmental procedures or responsibility.
