Cabeca Veada is a limestone from Portugal with a light beige/ white homogeneous colour, fine to medium brown grain and medium hardness. As its hardness and appearance are similar to those of the Moleanos limestone, it’s considered to be a very strong alternative.
Hitting the material, manually or mechanically, with a masonry tool called a bush hammer and generates uniformly distributed craters of different sizes over the surface of natural stone.
A honed finish refers to any level that is less than polished and therefore the surface is smooth but dull or slightly reflective.
Blasting silica sand against the material through an air gun and generates very small craters that highlight the colour of the stone.
Shiny surface, with almost zero porosity and highlights the colour and properties of the natural stone.
Smooth surface using abrasive brushes under high pressure.
The colours of the natural stone become more vivid.
Stone is scraped so that the surface exhibits a texture with straight reliefs and natural colours.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
