The Moleanos limestone is definitely one of the most prominent limestones from Portugal, with an increased demand. This natural stone can accept about any type of finishing but only a few can be frequently found in the international market.
Versatility is probably the word that best defines the Moleanos limestone, since it accepts a wide range of finishings and it can be used on almost all sorts of applications. It also presents comprehensive features that suit many different preferences, such as a considerable hardness, medium grain, uniform background and a consistent beige colour. In the present days, there are four main finishings that are commonly used all over the world – honed, polished, bush-hammered and sandblasted & brushed. While the first two favours interior projects, the last two are highly recommended for exterior applications, such as cladding and paving. The Moleanos limestone has a considerable demand, mostly for being a varietal natural stone.
