European Bluestone vs. Chinese Blue StoneChinese Bluestone (pictured above) has more catspaw (pitting) and a more uneven texture than European Bluestone

European Bluestone® vs. Chinese Bluestone


As the name suggests, Chinese Bluestone Pavers are exported from China. However, they look similar to the European Bluestone. Although, Chinese Bluestone is not as strong as European Bluestone Pavers and contain around 50% of the catspaw.

You can lay Chinese bluestone pavers in your garden areas, pathways, walkways. Although, we don't recommend using them as driveway pavers because they are more likely to crack overtime with the heavy traffic.
