They also resist heat exceptionally well, and can really make a patio or courtyard look amazing.
So, how is one of the most popular tile choices made? The process of making these tiles is rather simple. Since this type of tile is made using bluestone, the raw material needs to be quarried first from the earth. Bluestone gets quarried from several sites from around the world. It is made up of sand particles as well as quartz compounds, making it fairly strong.
After the quarrying process is over, the natural bluestone then gets sent to factories and workshops where it undergoes cutting. The sizes of the cuts can depend. Thin squares and rectangles are the most common shapes. These cut pieces then undergo other treatment processes like glazing or smoothening as it’s turned into an indoor or outdoor tile.
