Artesian Green is the strongest, most durable material in our collection. This characteristic makes it a very popular building material. Because of its strength, it does not respond as easily to more detailed fabrication. With a very small grain, the color can vary from one block to the next. Once cut and exposed to sunlight, the stone begins an oxidization process taking on a yellow cast and rich complexity that reaches full maturity over several months. When polished and honed, it makes for an elegant counter-top solution.
