Bluestone is a stone filled that has been used for centuries, yet is perfectly at home in modern settings. To make the most of bluestone’s character and create a one-of-a-kind outdoor space you’ll love, pair bluestone with these concrete pavers in Bethlehem, PA.
Bluestone is a type of sandstone; its name derives from its deep blue hues, although each stone is naturally varied in color depending on the location of the quarry and also by the depth from which the stone is quarried. While primarily blue or gray, each individual paver may contain the famous deep blue tones, as well as light gray, dark gray, sandy beige, copper, rust, light brown, chocolate, green, or purple.
