Exceptional Value

We pride ourselves in ensuring each piece of Wanaka Schist is cut to the highest quality. This provides an excellent yield (metres laid per tonne) with minimal wastage and reducing freight and handling costs.

Stacking stone

Wanaka Schist has an amazing range of warm and earthy grey colours from light creamy tones, dark charcoal greys and occasional golden brown hues.

Mixed Stacking Stone

This stone is guillotine cut in widths of 150mm or 180mm. Each bag of stacking stone includes a selection of corners (guillotine cut at a 90 degree angle) so it’s not necessary to order corners separately to complete most jobs.


We can supply limited numbers of corner-only bags for jobs with a high proportion of corners (where minimal walling stone is required).

Lightweight Schist Veneer

When space or weight of natural stone cannot be accommodated in a build we can supply a thin cut schist for use as a cladding. Natural stone is guillotine cut and then sliced thinly using a diamond saw. Only the guillotine cut faces are used ensuring the schist veneer matches perfectly with natural stone. Lightweight schist can be glued to a backing board similar to a tile and finished in the same style natural stone is. Finished, lightweight schist looks identical to natural stone and can be used on high walls, difficult architectural designs and in limited space areas.

We supply the schist in 1 tonne bags and can supply any quantity from 1 tonne upwards. The number of metres/tonne vary for the different products but 3.5m-5m is achievable depending on the style laid and product used.
