Nestled amidst the emerald forests and pristine coastal beauty of Vancouver Island lies the heart of K2 Stone, your natural choice for local stone building materials. Founded in 2003, our roots trace back to our unique Ocean Pearl Quarry, a 150-hectare mineral lease that yields our distinctive Ocean Pearl Stone - a Metamorphic Slate infused with Quartz, an unparalleled testament to nature's craft.

Step into the world of K2 Stone, your premium local source for natural stone building materials. Every stone that graces our collection is a piece of North America itself, rooted deeply in the land that we cherish. We painstakingly quarry and cut each piece right here in the region, taking care to preserve the individual character and quality that makes every slab unique. Through our close-knit respect for the land, we’re proud to bring you an array of products that are born of the Pacific Northwest's wild beauty.

Carbon Footprint Management: Every decision at K2 Stone is guided by our unwavering commitment to minimize our carbon footprint. In the realm of building materials, we have a deep understanding of the environmental implications. Manufactured concrete stone, a widely used material in the construction industry, is a significant source of CO2 emissions. The production process is extremely energy-intensive, requiring raw materials like clay and limestone to be heated to over 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit. This process and the chemical reactions involved result in roughly 1,370 pounds of CO2 for every metric ton of cement manufactured.
Contrastingly, our approach to sourcing and producing natural stone significantly reduces carbon emissions. We source exclusively from North American quarries, avoiding the emissions associated with long-distance freight. Our production facilities are strategically located to minimize transportation, and our product packaging is designed for efficiency. We also work with regional distributors to further cut down on transportation emissions.
Beyond these measures, our natural stone itself presents a more environmentally friendly alternative to manufactured concrete stone. Extracted from the earth and fashioned into building materials without high-energy manufacturing processes, our stone carries a significantly smaller carbon footprint. Plus, it doesn't contain harmful man-made chemicals found in concrete, offering a healthier, cleaner alternative.
By choosing K2 Stone, you're not just opting for a beautiful, durable building material—you're making a responsible, eco-friendly choice. Together, we can build beautifully while still caring for our planet.
Water Conservation: Recognizing the paramount importance of fresh, clean water, we've adopted rigorous water conservation initiatives. Our production facility employs water recycling procedures and an advanced water collection system, significantly reducing our consumption of fresh water.
Waste Diversion: We take pride in our innovative waste management strategies. K2 Stone adheres to a cradle-to-cradle lifecycle, ensuring 100% utilization of all extracted stone. We partner with other industries to transform our waste into reusable and recyclable materials, and we opt for natural, reusable, and recyclable packaging materials to transport our products. Furthermore, the longevity of our products ensures reduced waste and a lesser burden on landfills.
Environmental Impact Management: Our stones are a gift from nature, and we work hard to give back. We adopt selective stone extraction processes that optimize yield and minimize waste. We also have stringent dust control systems in place and conduct regular quarry water testing to monitor potential acid rock drainage. Our quarries are subject to ongoing reclamation, reflecting our commitment to minimizing our impact on these beautiful landscapes.
At K2 Stone, we don’t just provide natural stone, we do so in a manner that respects and nurtures our shared environment.
