    Description

    White coloured marble with a prominent position in Portugal. The Extremoz marble presents a quite uniform background with a thin to medium grain, high hardness and a slight brownish vein. It may also present some occasional light pink / brown coloured areas. In terms of positioning, this is undoubtedly the most famous white marble from Portugal, with well-developed supplying channels within the country.

    On the other hand, this marble has been over exploited and there are only a few active quarries remaining in √Čvora. As a result, the current availability and future expansions are both very limited.
