Directly from Alentejo, further south of Portugal, there is the Azul Lagoa marble. Considered one of the marbles with a high degree of hardness, the Azul Lagoa presents greyish tones of medium grain and distinct dark veins. It may present whitish areas that end up marking a great contrast in the stone, distinguishing it from other types of international marbles.
Blasting silica sand against the material through an air gun and generates very small craters.
A soft finish is identical to the polished finish, the surface is smooth but without glare or light reflections.
Abrasive treatments with repeated applications result in a shiny surface, highlights the colour and properties of the natural stone.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
Hitting the material, with a masonry tool called a bush hammer, that generates uniformly distributed craters of different sizes over the surface of 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.
Abrasive brushes under high pressure generate a touch-sensitive and smooth surface of natural stone.
Scratched finish is applied so that the surface exhibits a texture with straight reliefs and natural colours.
