What the Pooil Vaaish stone is suitable for what it has been used for in the past.
This material is suitable for both interior and exterior applications and is available in a range of finishes from naturally riven, sawn and rubbed, honed and polished.
With products ranging from cropped building stone and architectural features such as fire surrounds and corbels to tiling for walls and floors in addition to vanity surfaces, shower trays and basins, Pooil Vaaish is a versatile as well as beautiful material.
Whilst we would not recommend using Pooil Vaaish as a kitchen surface, it has been successfully used for vanity tops, splash backs and table tops. Our particularly rare and beautiful fossiliferous limestone was used for the reception desk at Manx Telecom’s Headquarters just outside Douglas, Isle of Man. An incredibly hard stone, the fossils, including corals and crinoids, show up white against the black background.
Standing guard above Port Jack on Onchan Head are a trio of Pooil Vaaish standing stones, one of which is engraved with runes, which were supplied and installed nearly 20 years ago. There are examples of our stones all over the island including at Nobles Hospital outside the main entrance, in the Organ Donation Memorial Garden and at the Hospice Building. A large number of engraved house name boulders are dotted all over the island.
Pooil Vaaish have been engraving local and imported stones for 20 years. From our design studio we create visuals for house and business signs, standing or memorial stones, awards, trophies and mementoes.
