    Description

    Fairly new grey limestone from Portugal, with a thin to medium grain and an average hardness. It presents a quite uniform background that can contain some occasional white spots and fossil traces. The Azul Peniche Dark has recently entered the international market, which means it still has a small and growing presence. In terms of extraction, there are only a few quarries exploring this limestone at the moment but there’s definitely room for expansion.

    This is today one of the main alternatives to the well-known Azul Valverde limestone that is basically out of production.
