Armour stone is natural quarry stone, chosen for its durability and resistance to wear and erosion. Traditionally, Armour stone is quarried by drilling and blasting, so its final size, shape and quantity could not be guaranteed.
Through advances in air-deck quarrying technology, Blue-Con can now offer Armour stone that is consistent in size, shape and weight, yet looks totally natural. Our flat-topped stones can be easily stacked to create beautiful retaining walls, impressive entrance pillars or gateways, stunning water features, naturalistic rock gardens, or whatever you wish! Armour stone can be particularly pleasing in pool or water environments due to the fossils contained within almost every stone.
