With its natural colour, tactile surface and flowing lines, beautiful stone sculpture from Birdwoods will add a graceful focal point to your home and garden

Prized by sculptors, Springstone is an extremely hard Serpentine with high iron content and a fine texture with no cleavages, and offering a good resistance to the sculptor. Springstone has a rich outer ‘blanket’ of reddish brown oxidised rock. They emerge from the quarry like sculptures created by nature millions of years ago and are often a source of inspiration to the artist. There are a few areas where this stone is found, but Guruve in the north is generally where Springstone in mined. A beautifully dark stone, it polishes to a high shine because of its density.
