Branco Mar is a limestone from Portugal with a relatively homogeneous beige color and thin grain. Some variations occur in characteristics such as grain size and quantity of fossils and darker spots.
Exposing the surface of the stone directly to a high-temperature flame and generates a thin roughness.
Blasting silica sand against the material through an air gun and generates very small craters.
A honed finish refers to any level that is less than polished and therefore the surface is smooth but dull or slightly reflective.
Splitting stone either by hand or by machine so that the surface exhibits a natural quarry texture.
Abrasive treatments with repeated applications result a shiny surface, highlights the color and properties of the natural stone.
Brushing the slab with a range of brushes and the result is a slightly undulating surface, very soft, warm and smooth to the touch.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
