What Is an Antique Stone Finish?

An antique stone finish is a treatment and process applied to natural stone surfaces which makes the surface look aged and naturally weathered. It produces a leathered affect, and its uniqueness and rustic charm can be very appealing. It is a great choice for architectural and designer projects and can be used both internally and externally, depending on the type of stone and desired aesthetics.

Antique Stone Finish Process

There are a variety of techniques which can be used to help achieve an antique stone finish. Here are the most common techniques used to recreate this unique and beautiful stone finish.


Stones can be tumbled in a machine with abrasives and other materials to create rounded edges and a worn appearance.


Similar to a brushed finish, we can use special mechanical brushes to remove the softer particles in stone, revealing the harder materials and creating a textured and rigid appearance.

Chemical Treatments

Another way of creating an antique stone finish is to acid wash the surface to etch and alter its appearance. Other chemicals can also be used for this process.


Chiselling is the process of using manual techniques to intentionally create a weathered and imperfect appearance on the stone surface.

Surface Coating

Antique stone finishes can also be created by applying a coating or a sort of sealer which can help create an aged look.
