STONEYARD® Adds a New Stone to it’s Line of Natural Thin Veneer: Portsmouth Granite

Massachusetts natural thin stone manufacturer STONEYARD®, announces the release of a new stone color in their popular line of thin cut veneer: Portsmouth Granite. This New England stone is available in four shapes at locations throughout the USA.


LITTLETON, MA, June 22, 2015 - STONEYARD®, a natural stone products manufacturer (, announced today that Portsmouth Granite has been added as a new thin stone veneer color and is available in four shapes: Mosaic, Square & Rectangular, Ledgestone, and Ashlar. This New England stone was selected due to its desirable range of colors, fine grain, and harsh climate durability.

“Living in New England our building materials need to be able to withstand the many freeze-thaw cycles that we go through in a given year. This includes some extreme weather conditions, both hot and cold, as well as snow, heavy rains, and salt water or sand spray. When we are deciding on what stones to add to our product line, we keep all of this in mind,” says David Croteau VP and co-founder of STONEYARD®.  

Portsmouth Granite is a fine grain granite stone with slight veining. It is a salt & pepper mix with light gray and subtle specks of black and brown. Accents of white and beige complete the color profile. “Customers have been asking for a gray granite, particularly one that is speckled, to match some of the historic architecture seen throughout New England. When we found the Portsmouth Granite, we knew it would be the perfect fit,” said Mr. Croteau.

Portsmouth Granite is available now through Stoneyard’s network of building and masonry supply yards throughout the USA. Free samples can be requested through the online store ( For more information about this product, photos, videos, installation guides, and project tours, please visit
