Moleanos Shelly is a limestone from Portugal with a white/ light beige color, fine brown grain and a few medium to large brownish fossils. Because it has a higher hardness than other limestones, it’s suited for application in masonry, façades and interior flooring.
Also known as: Moleanos Jurassic
Blasting silica sand against the material through an air
gun and generates very small craters that highlight the color of the stone.
Shiny surface, with almost zero porosity and highlights
the color and properties of the natural stone.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
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.
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 colors.
Brushing the slab with a range of brushes and the result
is a slightly undulating surface, very soft, warm and smooth to the touch.
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.
