Ataija Beige is a very fine-grained limestone in a light greyish-beige shade that may present some stylolite’s and thin calcific veins in a scattered manner. This is one of the hardest limestones extracted in Portugal and is characterized by its low absorption coefficient.
Exposing the surface of the stone directly to a high-temperature flame and generates a thin roughness.
A honed finish refers to any level that is less than polished and therefore the surface is smooth but dull or slightly reflective.
Abrasive treatments with repeated applications result in a shiny surface, highlights the colour and properties of the natural stone.
