Walling Shell Limestone for walls

Shell Limestone for walls

Named for its rich fossil deposits, every piece of Shell Limestone contains a unique array of fossilised marine life from clams to corals.

This captivating South Australian limestone has a light cream colour palette with consistently even textures across its surfaces.

On close inspection, you’ll discover a bevy of shells and fossil deposits that call to mind ancient scenes from our local coastlines.

We offer Shell Limestone as Tuscan Rubble Cladding, where we combine a mixture of limestone cladding thicknesses to be laid in an informal strata format, levelling the horizontal edges where possible.

Good to know

Wastage recommendation

It’s important to discuss the wastage amount with your installer. As a guide, we suggest 15% for grouted joints and 25% for dry laid walls to allow for cutting and shaping the stone on site.

Our installation recommendation

The installer should unpack each crate of stone and use the mix of the sizes supplied. We don’t exchange smaller pieces for larger pieces – it’s the installer’s responsibility to use all the sizes supplied to create your stonework pattern.

Looking for corner pieces?

We sell our corner pieces by the lineal metre. One lineal metre approximately equals 0.3m2 of wall cladding, so keep this in mind when confirming your order.

Our grout recommendation

You can choose between a contrasting or tonal colour for the grout. If you’re unsure, ask your designer for their recommendation, and consider any lifestyle factors that may impact maintenance.

Installing your stone without a grout joint?

We recommend an extra 15-20% for wastage so the stonemason can cut and shape the stone for butt-jointing.
