It is really popular in feature walls in landscapes, internal and external feature walls and commercial design works.
Basalt / bluestone is a hard rock igneous stone and needs rock cutting saw blades fit for purpose. The clear best blade for cutting bluestone is a diamond blade.
How to cut stone
When you are trying to work out how to cut rock like bluestone, it is important to consider the size and shape of the stones you are cutting – as well as how much you have to cut.
When you are dealing with a random assortment of large and small chunks of bluestone, you are best off with a power cutter as your rock cutting saw of choice – these are also referred to as a demolition saw (demo saw) or quick cut.
They are powerful, take a decent diamond blade size (generally a 12 inch, 14 inch or 16 inch depending on the brand and model) and with the right rock saw blade it will easily cut rocks.
If you are cutting bluestone pavers, blue stone bricks or bluestone blocks, then a standard bricksaw or blocksaw is probably a better option for you.
You can always cut bluestone with an angle grinder and people also have been known for cutting bluestone with circular saw. Both will do as a rock cutting saw but depth will be your biggest concern when cutting rock – the smaller the blade, the shallower the cut will be.
Another thing to watch out for is the dust created from dry cutting stone. Just remember to look after yourself and wear protective clothing, like a mask and safety goggles.
