Eramosa Limestone, due to its unique and pronounced fleuri pattern, accepts a variety of different finishes very well. It is originates from the Wiarton – Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada region and is not known to exist anywhere else throughout the world. Owen Sound (quarried) Limestone is a variation of the Eramosa Limestone but is sold as a natural surface top and bottom. Wiarton Eramosa Limestone wall stone is sold with a sawn top and bottom.

Textural contrast can be achieved by sandblasting flaming or bush hammering Eramosa. The rougher finishes are generally specified for exterior panels and vertical panels. Comparatively to other stone, Eramosa is a very durable and long lasting limestone.
