Portugal beige limestones: the choices
Beige limestones used on the construction and decoration sectors have a growing demand and have become quite popular. In Portugal you will find a wide selection of limestone that, due to competitive pricing and availability, have been considered reliable alternatives to French or British limestones.
On this video we present what are today the most relevant beige limestones from Portugal. We start with the Moleanos, which is probably the main reference as of today. This is a versatile limestone that is used on a diversity of applications, both interior and exterior. It can be supplied as Fine grain, Medium grain (or Classic) and Blue. In addition we have the Moca Cream, which is a beige limestone with a beautiful and unique parallel vein. As a preferential limestone for cladding applications, the Moca Cream has become a fashionable limestone in several Middle East countries like Qatar, UAE or Kuwait. The Moca Cream is supplied with Medium grain, Fine grain or simply as Cross-cut (no vein, just shadows). And finally we have the lesser known players, which despite having less demand, have seen a very large increase in terms of demand. These are the Rosal, which is a beige limestone characterized by its darker shadow areas. And the Cabeca Veada, which is today a direct alternative to the Moleanos Fine. All these are fantastic beige limestones, with good supply and growing demand.
