Cumbria-based stone engineers, Burlington, the name behind one of the world’s finest sources of natural stone native to the English Lake District, has extended its palette of rich and welcoming stone colours with the addition of Brandy Crag Silver.

Appropriately named after the quarry from which the stone is extracted, Brandy Crag Silver, as its name suggests, is a silver grey natural stone that exhibits softer, lighter tones and shades than Burlington’s familiar and popular Brandy Crag stone. Adding to the romance and appeal of Brandy Crag Silver are contrasting veins and markings inherent within the body of the stone that not only serve to highlight its authenticity but also its outstanding tactility.

Extracted from a quarry within the Coniston Coppermines Valley that has been worked since the middle of the 19th Century, Brandy Crag Silver serves to offer architects, interior designers, specifiers and discerning home owners with another quintessentially British natural stone that not only complements both traditional and contemporary design styles, but which provides a classic and weather resistant finish outdoors.

Commenting on Burlington’s decision to promote this rich vein of stone, sales and marketing director, Nick Williams said: “We know from research that we have taken undertaken with a number of leading architects and designers from across the globe that the softer and more lighter shades that this particular stone delivers are particularly vogue.

“Just as with our other natural stones and two limestones, Brandy Crag Silver is without doubt one of the finest available in the world today and it is particularly pleasing that it is available exclusively from a British producer. Brandy Crag Silver has already attracted the attention of one of our partners in the US, who have already made a commitment to promote and stock the stone on our behalf. We are equally confident that Brandy Crag Silver will attract universal appeal across both the domestic and other overseas markets,” he added.

Serving to complement Burlington’s existing natural stone product range, Brandy Crag Silver can be supplied in an exciting range of smooth and textured finishes that takes in gritblasted, flame textured, honed, spot textured, sanded, line textured, riven and waterjet. Suitable for both interior and exterior specification, Brandy Crag Silver is the perfect finishing material whether used for flooring, cladding, walling, paving or for use as interior furniture and fittings.
