Pink coloured limestone with beige colour tone, thin grain and a fairly uniform background. The Alpinina Clara shares most of the structure features common to the Alpinia Atlantida, including the same hardness, calcite traces and a red vein. The supply is generally done in slabs with resin and net. This is a high-class limestone with a segmented market and a strong incidence in its origin country. The extraction quarries are normally closed, opening solely when a new demand arrives.
This is a preferential limestone to be used on small interior decoration projects.
