Corton is a stone steeped in French history and emanates from the Burgundy region. The Corton limestone is a type of limestone that comes from the French Gréchons quarry, which is an open-cast deposit in the municipality of Ladoix-Serrigny (Côte d’Or) in France.
The Corton limestone is a honey-colored sedimentary rock which has pink veins and is an extremely hard limestone. Because of its hard exterior, Corton can be polished and installed in heavy traffic areas without the stone’s finishing or quality being compromised.
The Corton limestone range is ideal for kitchens and floors for people who want an authentic “provincial” look. The modern-day Corton limestone finds its unique coloring from a mix of fallen grapes and rainwater said to be seeping into the quarry since the reign of King Charlemagne in 778 A.D.
