Honed Himalayan Sandstone provides a solution to those looking for minimal variation in colour from tile to tile. Some tiles may have grey veining. The surface is smooth due to the honing process. That said, it remains non-slip as it is still quite textured at a micro level.Himalayan Sandstone is hard but porous making it more susceptible to mould and marking. It is very cool underfoot compared to dark colours. There is minimal thickness variation from tile to tile. Seal with a penetrating, consolidating sealer to make cleaning easier and reduce the effect of salt attack. Do not use strong acid to clean.
