Above is the range panel located at our factory on Portland which shows the typical geological characteristics of Stonehills Whitbed
Stonehills Whitbed has low/Medium shell content. Inclusions being predominantly grey with some white fragments (Solenopora). The shells are mainly large thin clams up to 80mm long laid parallel to the bedding.
The shells are randomly distributed across the stone, but due to the large clam shells, banding is evident particularly in larger slabs.
Mostly a tight uniform matrix with some evidence of openness and voids associated with light shell banding.
Typical Portland colour - creamy/white mellowing to grey/white over time.
