We completed a high-end luxury project, the main material of this project is a very luxurious natural stone – Sodalite Blue Granite.

Sodalite is a rare mineral best known for its blue to blue-violet color. High quality sodalite can be used as a gemstone, sculptural material, and architectural stone. Sodalite Blue is originally from Brazil. It is one of the most luxurious architectural stones in the world, with dark blue base color, some white veins spray on the surface.

This job of sodalite blue was taken around one month.
Let’s share the experience of this project.


 

How About the Project

This project is located in Jakarta, which is the head office of Astra Group, one of the biggest groups in Indonesia. The total value of this office building is more than 500 million US dollars. The client hoped the stone for lobby elevation is luxurious and upscale, so the architect decided to apply with Sodalite Blue, one of the world’s most expensive stones. In addition, Sodalite Blue was also used on counter in the lobby.


Production Process of Sodalite Blue

Before the client started to work with us on it, they looked around the world for the block of sodalite blue stone, but the color and texture were all not accepted. When the client came to us, saw the block we proposed, they were so excited since it is just what they wanted.
