Portland Jordans Basebed, is the finest quality Portland Stone with a close pore structure and little shell.
The stone is slightly less durable than Whitbed or Roach, and therefore may not be appropriate if a long life is required as a general paving stone, or in areas of very high exposure. Although originally used primarily as a monumental stone and carving stone, it has more recently been specified on high quality, prestigious office developments and used extensively for flooring.
Shell Content - some small grey shell fragment, but almost a 'shell free' Basebed. The cleanest type of Portland Stone.
Shell Distribution - the shell fragments are evenly distribution across the stone.
Texture - very tight texture making it ideal for fine carvings and mouldings as well as detailed masonry and cladding.
Colour - typical Portland colour, creamy-white.
