    Description

    The Azul Valverde has been for many years the most relevant blue/grey limestones from Portugal. It has a fairly uniform background and a thin to medium grain. Lighter and darker shaded areas are also frequent throughout the surface. The Azul Valverde limestone has made a considerable market in both Portugal and abroad, mainly due to its uniformity and unique colour range.

    Today, this is a limestone that will soon stop existing. Quarries are closing and reserves are basically coming to an end.
