Description of the stone: Lundhs Blue (also: Blue Pearl) is a classic material known for its blue background with lustrous blue and grey feldspar crystals. Thanks to its high density and non-porosity, it has incredible strength, resistance and absorption qualities. All surfaces are resistant to heat, scratches, stains, UV and water. They are easy to clean and require minimal maintenance. No sealing required.

Stone Story: The Larvik district in southern Norway is blessed with the monzonite variety named Larvikite. It was formed during a period of strong volcanic activity about 300 million years ago, cooled off and hardened at depths of 8-9.000 meters. The above lying material has since eroded, bringing the Larvikite to the surface. It contains beautiful blue crystals made of alkali feldspar, which refract the light in a special way so that the resulting play of colors often is called labradorization. Because of this optical effect, the stone is also known as Labrador.
