The Ataija Azul is a blue / grey coloured limestone that displays a uniform background and thin grain. Lighter and darker areas are somewhat regular, together with the appearance of darker blue spots. Well-defined shady blue veins can also appear very sporadically. This Portuguese limestone has a strong market within the country’s borders. However, at a global scale the Ataija Azul market is still evolving and it shows promising signs of growth.
The Ataija Azul is a preferential limestone to be used on diverse exterior landscaping projects, as well as both interior and exterior flooring.
