A rare discovery of Mavise Stone in one of the Indiana Limestone’s quarries allows for a limited supply of the versatile stone. The Mississippian Era deposit of Mavise Stone was uncovered in an eight-acre section of the firm's Victor Quarry near Bloomington, Ind. Mavise Stone is a unique natural stone tile material, often unavailable owing to its scarcity.
Mavise Stone can be manufactured in standard sizes or custom fabricated for interior finishes in both vertical and horizontal applications. Indiana Limestone, Mavise Stone contains the characteristics and structural integrity of a high-density material with a unique colorization. Because it is so scarce, Mavise Stone will only be available for a limited time.
"Mavise is a really rare and wonderful addition to our line of block material," said Duffe Elkins, COO of Indiana Limestone. "More like a marble in durability and with a unique veining and color movement, this material can be made into some striking tiles. Only found in an exclusive deposit, our core drilling has not identified additional supplies. For the right projects, this could be a statement element in the design."
