European Bluestone Tiles & Pavers are internationally renown for being a great value for money paver. It is the most similar Bluestone/Basalt in colour and quality to Australian Bluestone on the Australian market. With a higher density and texture with a sawn surface finish achieving a higher non slip level. This is a mid grey coloured bluestone and looks great when grouted with a light grey/neutral coloured grout BUT for those of you seeking a darker shade ie charcoal grey we recommend grouting with our charcoal grey stone grout. You can see the effect of the 2 different grouts in one of the pictures above. It is to be expected in European Bluestone to get a dimensional or thickness variation of +-3mm.

Please note that there is a +-3mm dimensional tolerance and therefore we recommend laying in a BRICK BOND pattern with a 8mm grout joint.

Note: European Bluestone like Australian bluestone will have occasional light saw marks and will have naturally occuring organic catspaw (covering between 5%-25% of any tiles surface). However, if you’d like your bluestone completely without cat’s paw, we can arrange to get them taken out for an additional cost.(approx 40% extra cost) NB. This material without catspaw will be lighter in colour. We do not recommend acid washing ANY natural stone as it can lead to surface burns and discoloration where the acid has reacted adversely with minerals present in the stone.. Cat’s Paw is a series of small pits which are naturally formed in bluestone as it solidifies when forming. Many architects and designers purposefully seek out as much cat’s paw as possible as it is commonly perceived as a natural feature that people like to show off.

Cat’s paw does not negatively affect the durability or quality of the bluestone. It is a natural occurrence in bluestone which people have an aesthetic preference to that makes bluestone recognisable.

Installation, Sealing & Maintenance Guide


Please use one of the following adhesives IF installing in the adhesive is preferred…..

If you prefer to install your pavers in traditional sand and cement style follow these instructions to the letter:

– Select one of the adhesives above (they ALL have a rapid setting time) and simply mix as per manufactures specifications then notch the adhesive onto the back of EVERY tile (ensuring 100% coverage).
– Let the adhesive set, usually around 3-4 hrs and then install the tiles as per your usual technique into the wet sand and cement mix.
– This system minimises the risk of any of the tiles warping slightly due to being moisture sensitive.
– GROUTING should ONLY occur IF the tiles have been completely dry for at least 4 days in a row.
– IT IS NOT acceptable to blow the water out of the joints and then grout as you WILL have effluence issues, possibly warping issues, picture framing due to trapped excessive moisture.
– You must of course follow the Australian Tiling Standards in regard to incorporating expansion joints into your tiling. Failure to do so WILL lead to dummy and lifting tiles.


Highly recommended around BBQ areas or when the blue stone tiles are installed as internal floor tiles. Bluestone pavers and tiles can be sealed with an invisible penetrating sealer to assist in the easy ongoing clean up of the stone pavers. We recommend sealing your Bluestone pavers with Tasman’s STONE SHIELD ( invisible no colour change penetrating sealer) This is also available at Stone & Slate Discounts. Cleaning prior to sealing we recommend a high-pressure wash only, please ensure that you keep the jet nozzle around 250mm-300mm above the pavers at all times. DO NOT use a colour enhancing sealer on your bluestone as they tend to highlight any saw marks not visible to the naked eye and are generally harder to use and can be problematic.


Do not use Hydrochloric acid to clean up as this can cause minerals present in the stone to react adversely.


Just sweep when needed. Bluestone responds well to high-pressure cleaning with a domestic machine, please keep the nozzle about 300mm minimum away from the face of the bluestone pavers and tiles. A solution of mild detergent and water can be applied prior to pressure cleaning.

Standard Grade V Premium Grade

Here we will discuss the different characteristics of these two distinct bluestone categorizations.

Generally speaking, Standard Grade Bluestone will have the following characteristics:

  • A higher percentage of tiles or pavers containing naturally occurring catspaw, between 3-15% of the surface of the tile.
  • Cutting tolerances during the process of slicing the bluestone boulders up into tiles or pavers. In this case, a variation or tolerance allowance of +-3mm is to be expected. This leads to the occasional tile or paver being slightly out of square and is the reason why we recommend laying ONLY in a brick bond or stretcher bond pattern (which may fix these issues). If laying in adhesive, we recommend using a 6mm notch trowel to spread the adhesive BOTH on the slab and on the entire back of every tile or paver in a cross thatched pattern.
  • In some rare instances where some Ferro particles may be in the catspaw, it should be noted that these can be hidden during the grouting process.
  • The non-slip rating is HIGHER due to the sawn surface finish during the cutting process.

Premium Harkaway Bluestone comparison:

  • Less naturally occurring catspaw, usually around 0-5% of any tile or pavers surface.
  • Variation or tolerance allowance of +-1.5mm is to be expected.
  • Naturally occurring light surface pattern and colour variations may be present compared to standard grade.
  • Surface finish is lightly honed, giving a slightly smoother finish, however, is still classified as a non-slip surface



Harkaway Bluestone Pavers and matching pool coping tiles are our top bluestone selection because they offer the highest quality and durability and meet the expected Australian standards for bluestone pavers and pool coping tiles. The Harkaway Bluestone has a very consistent and smooth surface, with very few natural blemishes or variations. It is extremely hard-wearing and is able to withstand the test of time with ease, as is seen on the streets of Melbourne. Its beautiful rich blue-grey colour is perfect for creating a sophisticated and elegant look for any outdoor space. The Harkaway Bluestone is the perfect choice for those who want the very best in terms of both quality and style.

However, if the Harkaway Bluestone is slightly out of budget, then European Bluestone pavers and pool coping tiles are a great alternative. They offer very similar qualities to the Harkaway Bluestone, including a consistent texture, a rich blue-grey colour, and durability. The European Bluestone pavers and pool coping tiles are also able to withstand harsh weather conditions, making them a great choice for outdoor areas. They also show no signs of being moisture sensitive as opposed to ALL Chinese Bluestone, creating issues upon installation if not handled correctly.

Although both options are more expensive than Chinese Standard Grade Bluestone pavers and pool coping, they are well worth the investment due to their superior quality and durability. The Chinese Standard Grade Bluestone pavers and pool coping may have more natural blemishes, size and colour variations, which can impact the overall appearance and quality of your outdoor space. And of course have moisture sensitivity issues upon installation. Investing in high-quality bluestone pavers and pool coping ensures that you are getting the best possible product that will last for years to come, adding value to your property and enhancing the look and feel of your outdoor space.
