The Moca Creme Classic is a beige coloured limestone, which is characterized by its parallel vein, medium grain and uniform background. Its main variations depend on the thickness of the grain and if it is cut in favour or against the vein (where it shows no parallel vein). This is the most well-known type of Moca Creme.
This is considered by many as the ex-libris of Portuguese limestone, with international recognition and large demand. This is a preferential limestone to be used on exterior cladding, with countless reference projects using it.
