Bluestone is a type of sandstone first found in this part of New York State and named for its colour. If the initial deposit was made under slow moving water the ripples of the water action on the sand or mud will be revealed in the stone. We had some large Bluestone steps at the back of the house but the lowest step was of concrete, so yesterday we replaced that with Bluestone expertly cut and laid by our Nepalese stone man Gurmi Lama. It looks so good going through our little herb garden to the back door.
