Jerusalem Stone is famous for its understated style and elegance, and its origins evoke a symbolism that resonates with culture and history.
Until now Jerusalem Stone has been considered exclusive and cost prohibitive, to be specified only when compromise in aesthetics is not an option. However, by making it available in natural thin veneer form, New England Thinstones will bring Jerusalem Stone, one of the more favored elements of high end architects and builders, within reach of many more projects.
This unique stone lends itself to many interior and exterior environments, both residential and commercial.
Increasing numbers of architects, builders and homeowners across the country have been specifying New England Thinstones’ traditional New England stone veneers instead of full dimension stone to take advantage of the significant savings in time, material, freight and labor expenditures.
By keeping a large Jerusalem Stone inventory in our Connecticut facility, turn around and delivery times are kept to a minimum anywhere in the U.S.
All colors and blends shown are available in all cuts. We also supply Jerusalem Stone finished in forms other than thinstone.
Jerusalem Stone is 100% natural stone. Shade and color variations are to be expected.
"It’s all about the corners" A common refrain from experienced stonemasons underscores the importance of a well proportioned corner precision cut to ninety degrees.
The corner piece is the first to be installed and ultimately sets the bar for the standard of the finished work. Corners cut by hand on a table saw are limited in size, often not squared and will likely break if sawn with an over-cut.
We use an automated corner saw with two blades set at right angles to one another capable of producing twenty inch long pieces with a consistent thickness. The larger the piece, the more options a mason will have to resize and reshape it.
