Bursting Stone

The Bursting Stone quarry is one of the most prominent quarries within the Lake District, situated on the side of ‘Coniston Old Man’ and has been worked since the middle of the 19th Century. Bursting Stone is olive green in colour and often highlighted by contrasting veins which emphasise its natural origins. Bursting Stone has been used to provide cladding, flooring, cills and copings. Its rich, dark contrasting olive green tones create subtle colour changes to add life and character to any domestic or commercial project.


The colours shown in this range sample of swatches are indicative only and would encompass the colour variations available from our standard range of products. Only for any bespoke requirements, customers can determine their specific needs for the project and product choices can be made after reference to detailed samples. The uniqueness of Burlington natural stone means colour tone and markings can change as a consequence of its extraction from different stone seams and the finish carried out to its surface.
