Background

The Jura Beige is explored by several companies located in the Titting-Kaldorf (upper Bavaria) in the same quarries where the Jura Grey limestone is explored. The quarries can have medium to large dimension and a considerable output of extraction every month. The blocks extracted are normally large but fairly short, but this may vary.

 

Finishings

The Jura Beige accepts well most types of finishings. However, the ones we most recommend are:
– Polished;
– Honed;
– Bush-hammered;
– Brushed;
– Sandblasted.
