What is Cantera?

Mexican Cantera Stone and Cantera Tile roots date back thousands of years.  This soft yet durable material is a strong and malleable natural stone that is formed by volcanic dust and ash washed into silt beds.  Cantera stone tile and building columns and other products offered by STSC have been combined with lava and local Mexican stone where it has been compressed for millions of years.  One reason cantera stone is popular is because it is porous and lightweight.  It is easy to work with and to ship.  It has been preferred throughout the years as a prime building material for its natural beauty, ability to be carved into columns, Cantera fireplaces, windows, surrounds, as well as tile or Cantera pavers.

Within our Cantera tile and stone products, there exists natural beauty, unique color varieties, as well as texture options.  Each piece is a carved work of art.  No two Cantera tiles are identical. Cantera Stone Hood This floor tile can be available in a smooth texture or available with engraved texture for a non-slip surface.  Floor tile and pavers are typically non-slip with left unsealed.  Otherwise, we offer a high quality non-slip sealer that can be applied.

Because Cantera stone is such an easy material to artfully craft, the decor and building options are endless.  Buildings, statues, monuments, and cantera tile floors have stood the test of time for hundreds of years with this beautiful stone.

View our Cantera Color Pages to see the variety of colors available. Cantera stone is sold in its natural finish and color variations can be expected from tile to tile.  Application of a sealer is recommended for areas where the porous tile needs to be protected from staining or absorption of debris.  Visit our Floor Sealers for information about our sealers.
