    Description

    The light variation of the Azul Peniche limestone presents a medium to gross grain, followed by a medium hardness. This is a grey coloured limestone with some blue and brown areas across the surface. It can also contain occasional signs of fossils. The Azul Peniche Light is a quite recent limestone from Portugal with very large demand in particular for private interior projects, as well as some commercial cladding jobs.

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