    API Beige Sandstone Gallery

    The stone is extracted in Quintanar de la Sierra in Northern Spain from the same quarry as the more colourful API Vein, and has a long and distinct heritage within Spain. API Beige is the most popular sandstone that API Stone Ltd have within their range.

    The striking colouration of API Beige sandstone features a buff/beige base with light reddish veins, which add depth and interest to both traditional and contemporary
    building designs.

    API Beige is specified throughout the UK on a regular basis, as it is a suitable match for many Yorkshire and Derbyshire buff/beige sandstones that are also on the market.

    The material is suitable for all ashlar, cladding, architectural and landscape applications in various finishes from honed to bush hammered.
