Spanish Limestone

 Spanish Limestones range in colour from the white Caliza Capri to the striking black Nero Marquina.
Some of the best known, such as Crema Marfil and Dark Emperador, are hard stones that can be highly polished and are often mistaken for marbles.

Our range includes:

Bateig, Caliza Capri, Cenia Cream, Cenia Grey, Crema Marfil, Dark Emperador, Gris Catalan, Juneda, Nero Marquina, Rojo Alicante, Siera Elvira

Within this range, many of the quarries have several layers or beds of stone (known as benches) that can have different technical and aesthetic properties. Please call and we will be happy to discuss the details.
