    Hi -
    thanks for the compliment -- the pavers came with this color range -- often stone has a wide range of colors - just built in.
    all the best,

    Hi -

    So, I got these pavers at American Slate in Walnut Creek, CA - they are quartzite pavers -- and basically brick shaped/sized - in other words +/- 2.5 inches thick and roughly 4 x 8 in size - so pretty small. They are set in a paired basket weave pattern - two parallel set next to two parallel but flipped 90 degrees. The link below should take you to images of similar pavers - on my screen - the golden migration looks close. The color variation was just part of the mix --- always better to see this kind of thing in person. I chose from the stock at hand - and if memory serves there was the option of the gold to brown/bronze direction and/or the blue greys. I went with the gold to brown - and I do remember that some of them were on the pink side which after a little while ( in other words after getting naturally a little dirty) the pink seemed to not be anything I really noticed.


    The thing I did like is that they have very sturdy, quite heavy and being square cut on the edges with I think a finished back side - they lent themselves nicely to a sand set installation just butting them up against each other.

    Thanks for the question,
