Diamond Sawn Boulders
Capricorn Sandstone Quarries has manufactured a unique sandstone retaining wall block, a Diamond Sawn Boulder. With four quarry sawn sides and diamond sawn top and bottom giving a consistent height, the Diamond Sawn Boulder is good for a neat uniform looking wall.
They’re also proving useful as an alternative to Square Cut Boulders with standard sizes ranging from 400mm width and height to 600mm. Diamond sawn top and bottom gives tight joint closure, better aesthetics and less chance of vermin or weeds. They are a multipurpose product and customers have used them for seats, walls and even grandstands.
At the Quarry the raw material is processed at the same location as it is excavated which is unusual and allows more flexibility in the manufacturing process. A good example of this is the Diamond Sawn Boulder which is partly diamond sawn in the factory and then re-finished in the quarry. The Quarry utilises all of its A and B grade material, so retaining boulders can be sold at very competitive prices and Capricorn Sandstone Quarries can negotiate very cost effective transport using backloading rates.
Diamond Sawn Boulder Specs:
Size - Heights: 400mm, 500mm, 600mm and Width: 300 +
(Large orders can be cut to size)

Carved Entrance Feature Slabs
Capricorn Sandstone Quarries hand pick feature slabs as they pass through the factory and the skilled Stonemasonry team hand carve lettering and logos into the stone. With a chosen paint colour they can also highlight the customers’ branding or logo for maximum visibility.
Sandstone Slab Entrance Features can be cut to any size up to 2000 x 1200mm and can be mounted on stone brackets for stability. The stone can be supplied in plain colours, or with beautiful patterns to create a stunning statement. Larger entry statements can be created using blocks or a combination of blocks and slabs.
