With a very uniform background in terms of colour and grain, the Banco Paloma has become one of the top beige limestone selections in Spain. The international demand has also increased in the last decade. One of the unique characteristics of this limestone is the existence of some small shells and fossils that may appear throughout the surface.
The Blanco Paloma is extracted by a single quarry in Andalucia, where large blocks are normally extracted. There are currently limited reserves of this stone.
