    Description

    Brown limestone from Portugal that presents a breccial nature with some reddish, golden and crystal areas. It has medium grain and a great hardness. There can be some lighter shaded areas as well. The Brecha Algarve is one of the most relevant Brecha stones from Portugal and it has a stable market within the country.

    The extraction point is located in the south of Portugal, where several quarries with a small-medium size extract blocks with certain dimensions in order to avoid cracks and other problems.
