Raj also known as Fernlea is one of our most popular ranges and it is easy to see why. It was originally brought over to replicate York Stone whilst keeping the costs much lower. The stone is a sedimentary stone, which consists of small grains which are held together by a silicon ‘natural cement’. This is a very popular colour as it has different colours and shades of green, brown, and grey stone mixed through it.
