While looking for bluish-gray (or grayish-blue) limestone – a request from a potential client, we were shown a new variety of fossiliferous ornamental limestone. It’s a beautiful stone, its mining just starting. Additional photos of in the rough and sawn exposed outcrops and polished sample slabs of this new variety – dedicated small photo gallery here. Just drop us a line if you are curious about this stone – our contact here.
Numa viagem de pesquisa de fornecedores de blocos de calcário azul (cinzento) – pedido de um cliente, mostraram-nos uma nova variedade de calcário fossilífero ornamental. É uma pedra bonita, tendo a extração experimental apenas começado. Podem ser vistas outras fotografias – dos afloramentos, de rocha serrada e de amostras polidas – nesta pequena galeria de fotos.
