The roughly hexagonal shape of the Natural Basalt Column is created when a lava flow begins to cool from inside. Fissures form and expand. Finally, the lava flow hardens into a honeycomb of columns. This process creates a stone that is completely unique to fashion into a fountain.
These amazing natural wonders are found on almost every continent, most famously the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland and Columbia River Gorge in Washington, USA.
After quarrying this striking material, we highlight the piece by polishing the alternating faces of the stone. This process creates a stunning fountain that toes the line between refined and rustic. You can expect some minimal spalling or flaking off of small pieces of the natural facets which have been weathering for millions of years.
