CHINA BLUE BLUESTONE MORE INFORMATION – An inferior bluestone with far less quality restraints and VERY common in the Australian market place ( often sold and marketed by unscrupulous Chinese traders and concrete paver merchants who have now decided to try to sell natural stone pavers). Far more porous and prone to oxidisation when used externally and around 20-30% catpaw air holes.
