Across the world, and for centuries, limestone is used extensively for interior and exterior cladding due to its extraordinary beauty and endurance. From the ancient pyramids of Egypt to contemporary architecture, Ōamaru stone – a natural and homegrown limestone – is a cost effective construction option that contains environmentally friendly attributes and benefits for a broad range of residential and commercial applications. Ōamaru stone often contains fossilised remains from the sea and beautiful bands of colour.
Ōamaru stone building products are sourced from high quality, natural deposits of limestone in the Waitaki region of New Zealand. Limestone is a sedimentary rock formed in oceans, rivers and lakes over many millions of years.
