Best Finishings for the Moleanos Limestone

  • Moleanos Limestone Polished
  • Moleanos Limestone Bush-Hammered
  • Moleanos Limestone Brushed

The Moleanos limestone is a reference natural stone from Portugal that is mostly known for its versatility and endurance. These particular features allow the Moleanos limestone to accept a huge range of finishings. But which ones are the most suitable?

This type of limestone can be found in many different finishings, including polished, brushed, flamed, bush-hammered, sandblasted and even a fusion of sandblasted and brushed. Despite this diversity, the Moleanos limestone presents a few finishings that are more suitable overall, especially when it comes to different types of applications and purposes. Learn which finishings are currently the most popular.


The most common and popular finishing is definitely the polished type, which is exactly the ex-libris of finishings for the Moleanos limestone. This finishing highlights the beige colour and the well-defined grain of the Moleanos. Also, it creates a smooth and shiny surface, which makes it ideal for most types of applications, especially flooring.


Bush-hammered is another finishing that is greatly accepted by the Moleanos limestone, mainly because of its hardness. This finishing changes the surface of the limestone considerably, while maintaining a certain degree of beige coloration. This type is quite popular for exterior applications such as flooring and paving, pool borders and some wall cladding.


The brushed finishing is one of the most suitable types for the Moleanos limestone, since it creates a fairly smooth surface with a certain level of grip. While maintaining most of its original beige colour, the brushed type highlights the grain and existent fossils. Furthermore, it is commonly used on diverse flooring applications, as well as in some wall cladding and decoration.
