Light brown-creamy marble with a medium hardness and thin grain. The Crema Cenia presents a relatively uniform background with occasional darker signs of fossils and small shady brown coloured areas. This is a fairly popular marble in Spain with a considerable market and an expanding international presence. The extraction point for the Crema Cenia is located in the north-east of Spain.
There are only a few quarries that are currently operational. The extracted blocks normally have medium or large sizes.
