Cantera Stone

What is Cantera Stone and where does it come from?

Cantera is a Spanish word which means ‘quarry’. It is a sedimentary stone that has been formed from volcanic ash which settled in silt beds over thousands of years and was compressed during the process. It is typically found in various regions of Southern Mexico, Cantera stone has been one of the most popular choices for decorative works of art for years and now is your opportunity to bring its magic into your home.

Perfect For Arizona!

Cantera stone is porous and it breathes by absorbing air and humidity yet this doesn’t result in the stone expanding or contracting in varying weather conditions. This and its beauty make it the ideal material for decorating homes in the sometimes extreme Arizona climate. It is perfect for swimming pool patios because it remains cool no matter how hot the weather.
