Mortar Color Selector
Another important consideration when choosing the stone you would like for your
project is mortar colors. Masonry is no longer confined to plain cement-gray mortar,
a range of colors is available from tans and beiges to reds and blacks. The tool
below to created to help you visualize and experiment with how mortar color can
effect the appearance of Pinnacle Thin Stone Veneer.
First select your style Pinnacle product from a light, mid-tone or dark thin stone
veneer. Next select your mortar color from white, beige and gray.
Our thin stone products featuring dark and bold color tones look
sharp with a white or light gray mortar. This combination creates the greatest contrast,
highlighting the organic shapes and textures found in our natural stone veneers.
This contrast also puts the craftsmanship of the masonry work on full display, with
the potential to turn your project into a work of art. While utilizing a darker
gray or brown mortar with dark toned stone veneers can create a classic aged appearance.
Some products found in the darker range of our product line include:
Heritage Mica featuring browns, grays and silvers with a glittery mica sheen.
Locust Ridge which showcases a colorful palette of blues, burgundies and plums.
Sangria, our classic brownstone provides beautiful burgundies and reds.
West Mountain Fieldstone, beiges, blacks, browns, oranges, rusts, and tans all
come together in this classic bold Appalachian stone.
Mid-tone colors are found in a variety of shades and styles within
our thin stone veneer product line. From the speckled highlights of our granites
to the sparkling sheen of our micas, Pinnacle Stone’s Mid-tone products are all
as unique as they are beautiful.
Mid-tone color palettes are also often created when using a
custom blend of veneers. Whether combining lights and darks or multiple
products with varying color shades, a blend can turn your project into a truly one-of-a-kind

Sienna is a unique product for drawn from Ice Age era glacial deposits. Sienna

Sandstones, limestones and granites are found in the stone veneers with a light
color profile. When working with a light stone product, the mortar
color used can drastically change the look of the product. A white or light gray
mortar will help drawl out the more subtle color striations and textures found in
each product while blending with the stone edges to keep a light appearance. A brown
or darker gray mortar will darken the overall appearance of the stone project and
highlight the shapes.
Light veneer products include:
Valley Forge featuring a mix of light beiges, grays, browns, and subtle purples
with an unmistakably soft texture.
Chesapeake, a light pale granite full of understated richness. Subtle whites
with just a hint of peppery blacks and grays.

an historic aged appearance.
