The first two pictures were taken when the Midnight Black was wet. This same color can be achieved by using a sealer / color enhancer. This customer, with the aid of their amazing landscaper, spent a significant amount of time choosing their natural stone. In the end, they chose the Midnight Black and are very happy with their choice.
The last two pictures of the “Midnight Black” water feature are not wet and natural light. They used Black Mortar Color.
They used alternating (full rows) of 2 1/4″ and 7 3/4″ sawn height sizes. Most of the water feature is a split surface, however they asked us to saw and texture a few rows for added contrast between the natural and smooth rows of stone.
