Split Face

Split Face generally refers to products that have either been quarried or mechanically split using machines to create a rough hewn surface that shows off the natural cleft of the stone. Depending on the type of stone that is being worked, the end result can vary from a slightly smoother finished surface on a more quartz based stone, to a more inconsistent and cratered look on stones like limestone and sandstone. Natural stone splits along the cleavage layers and most of the time it can end up being fairly flat.
