Cantera Stone

where function meets beauty

Cantera stone

Cantera stone is also known as hand-carved stone. Because it is both beautiful and functional, Cantera quarried stone has many architectural and decorative uses. Outdoors, it can be carved into stately columns, figurines, and fountains. Indoors, Cantera is an elegant option for fireplaces, kitchen range hoods, and more. It looks stunning when carved as a door or window surround.

Cantera is also prized in its tile form. Its versatility makes it an ideal choice for a variety of areas, from the kitchen to the bathroom. It is also frequently installed as a unique pool surround or pool coping, due to its non-slip finish.

Thanks to Rustico’s skilled hand-carvers, the sky is the limit when it comes to adding Cantera to your home.

How is Cantera Stone Made?

Mexican Cantera stone and tile roots date back thousands of years. This soft-yet-durable material is a strong and malleable natural stone. It is formed by volcanic dust and ash that has been washed into silt beds. Rustico’s Cantera stone has been combined with lava and local Mexican stone and compressed for millions of years.  Learn more with our Cantera Stone FAQs.

One reason Cantera stone is so popular is because of its porous and lightweight nature. This makes it easy to work with and easy to ship. 

This natural stone has unique color varieties and many texture options. Each piece of Cantera stone is a carved work of art, and no two pieces are identical.
