*Please note that as natural stone is a natural product there can be variations in the composition of the stone that would result in these test results varying across the raw material. These results are an average taken from the testing of multiple samples taken from several quarried blocks. Cumbrian Stone would always recommend consulting a structural engineer to establish the minimum required properties where natural stone is being used for structural purposes, and the results contained on this sheet are not to be taken as a structural recommendation in any case.
