|WHO WE ARE || |
Devonian Stone of New York, Inc. is nestled in the hills of the southern tier of NY near the northeast Pennsylvania border. Our quarries contain the finest quality Glacier Blue® Devonian Sandstone, which is cut and shaped in various sizes and thicknesses in our 13,000 sq ft fabrication facility. We have over twenty-five years of experience in the stone business producing beautiful stone. We take great pride in our work and in our commitment to protecting and preserving the environment.
Glacier Blue® Devonian Sandstone has been specified in high end applications, such as the Historic Dakota Building in NYC, Yale University and the Smithsonian Institute.
|WHAT IS GLACIER BLUE® DEVONIAN SANDSTONE? ||Back to Top |
Glacier Blue® Devonian Sandstone is a sedimentary rock formed during the Devonian Period. This striking and workable building stone evolved during 410 million years of glacial pressures and natural mountain-forming events. It’s largely made up of silica with a quartzite cement, which give the material incredible strength.
|HOW IS GLACIER BLUE® DEVONIAN SANDSTONE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER “BLUESTONES”? ||Back to Top |
Glacier Blue® Devonian Sandstone is mined deep in the earth whereas the common bluestone is mined from the upper and outer layers of the stone bed, closer to the earth’s surface. In this upper area of the bedding plane, exposure to freeze and thaw cycles contributes to why one will find the inconsistent color variations in the stone ranging from gray, brown, green, rust, gun metal and red. Due to the depth at which Glacier Blue® Devonian Sandstone is quarried from, it retains it’s consistently beautiful blue/gray hue throughout the entire stone.
Exposure to freeze and thaw cycles also contributes to common bluestone’s “natural cleft” or it’s splitting open along the horizontal bedding plane. Because Glacier Blue® Devonian Sandstone is mined from deep in the earth where there is little or no exposure to freeze and thaw cycles, our stone has no natural cleft. We cut all six sides ensuring the exact dimensions your project requires.
|WHAT SIZES AND THICKNESS ARE AVAILABLE? ||Back to Top |
We custom cut every project per your specifications. Almost any size and configuration are possible. The following thicknesses are guidelines for common applications. (please refer to your architect or contractor for what is best for you)
