CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

For routine maintenance of the surfaces, always use neutral cleansers (for example, FILACLEANER or neutral soap). Do not in any case use harsh products that could irreparably damage the surface of the stone (such as acids or descaling products).
We strongly recommend that you do not place hot objects such as kettles or pans directly onto natural stone as it may cause
discolouration or staining.
If your stone is exposed to “hard water” where there is a high mineral content, you will need to take a little extra care as the cleaning properties of the FILACLEANER or neutral detergent will be weakened. You will therefore need to use these products a little more frequently so that soap scum, lime scale and the like do not have the chance to build up and congeal.

SHIPPING AND ASSEMBLY

SHIPPING
As a rule, all orders destined within Italy should arrive within 1-3 working days, whilst for countries within the EU the estimated delivery time is 2-6 working days and 8-10 for other destinations.
We process all orders received for smaller items weighing less than 70 kg each morning (Monday to Friday) before midday (CET or UTC +1) and usually they will be dispatched the same day. Orders placed after midday (CET) Monday to Friday will be dispatched the following working day. Once your order has been sent, we will send you an email with a tracking link so that you can monitor your delivery.
For bulkier items (tables, storage pieces, special editions, bathtubs and mirrors), delivery times may vary, based on the dimensions of the product and availability in our warehouse. For a more detailed explanation, please click here.

Product description

The Lost Stones story began in 2019 when Gabriele Salvatori and Piero Lissoni, inspired by the traditional Japanese technique of Kintsugi which repairs broken objects with gold, set out on a mission to repair flawed or damaged slabs of natural stone. Using a golden resin, we applied the same approach to abandoned or damaged slabs of natural stone. From there, we evolved the idea and developed a concept that could be described as the interior design equivalent of a bespoke garment. Lost Stones is not available in standard tiles, but instead every slab is sourced, cut and finished to optimise the stone itself and the environment it will grace. The result is a truly special texture and in the rich dark tones of Pietra d’Avola, the golden seams find their perfect contrast to create a designer product that injects luxury and warmth to floors and walls. Beyond the aesthetics, there is also the knowledge that when you choose Lost Stones, you are also making a sustainable design choice, giving new life to a natural resource that was previously unloved but now is restored to splendour.

Good to know

You will immediately notice when your Pietra d’Avola tiles arrive that they will have a grey colour rather than the lovely rich brown of the samples you have probably seen.
This is because we do not treat it before it leaves our premises, as it is better done once installed, ideally with an enhancing product which will bring out the intense brown colour.
We recommend FILASTONE PLUS for this.

Pietra d’Avola is a compact material with a very low absorbency coefficient.
As a result most of the water-oil-repellent products on the market are too dense for it as they tend to create a film on the surface of the stone which can be difficult to remove.
This is another reason we recommend FILASTONE PLUS for Pietra d’Avola.

IMPORTANT NOTE
If you are installing Pietra d’Avola in an area where it will be frequently exposed to water, if you apply FILASTONE PLUS as recommended above, you will not require any further water-repellent treatment product.
Please DO NOT use any water sealant product such as FILA HYDROREP in combination with STONE PLUS.
It is not necessary and, in fact, may be detrimental to both the effectiveness of the treatment and the stone’s aesthetic.

The images shown on this page are indicative of the colour and characteristics of our products but cannot be 100% representative. Being made from natural materials, every tile or slab is unique in terms of tonality, colour and characteristic. These are all subject to variation depending on the type of stone and the conditions in the quarry from where it comes.
