The Semi Rijo Fine is a white coloured limestone, with thin grain and quite uniform background. It presents some small darker spots throughout its surface and it may have some slight signs of fossils. In terms of hardness, this is a soft natural stone. Its main variations depend on the amount of darker spots, grain and signs of fossils.
The Semi Rijo Fine is a preferential limestone to be used in stonework, masonry and other detailed applications. Due to its soft nature, this is quite an easy limestone to manufacture.
