Limestone ideal for exterior

Extracted from our own quarry


Technical description

Calcarenite natural stone of cream color with some fossils, with a very uniform color and texture. Also available with a slightly veined effect when it is cut against the vein.

Aesthetic qualities

This natural stone stands out due its natural warm feeling. Its tone transmits the light and the warmth of the Mediterranean sun, with a texture, which inspires the calm and beauty of the beaches touched by the sea. It provides a high decorative potential thanks to the subtle veins, which are present naturally.

Applications

It can be used in all types of works and decorative elements. Intended for outdoor applications, it is mostly utilized in pavements and pool finishes, being of use also for facades, in which the aim is to pursue a great homogeneity and continuity. It requires a little maintenance and offers an ideal behavior outdoors: It is a very insulating stone, which does not provide a burn feeling when it is touch, and which also balance the level of adherence with a dry or wet floor. It does not produce puddles and easily evaporates the absorbed water due to its open porosity.
