The Alpinina Atlantida is an exclusive pink coloured limestone with a very specific market within Portugal and internationally. It presents a thin grain and a fairly uniform background with some clear signs of calcite and a red coloured vein. This is a quite hard limestone and as a result, it is normally supplied in slabs with a net and resin. Additionally, the quarries where this limestone is extracted are quite small and they only function upon demand, which intensifies its exclusivity.
This is a limestone with high demand for exclusive and small-scale decoration projects.
