Pele de Tigre is a marble from Portugal with a white color, fine to medium grain, a distinct irregular dark blue veins and a relatively high degree of hardness. Some variations occur in characteristics such as vein intensity and pattern, color and structure.
Abrasive treatments with repeated applications result in a shiny surface, highlights the colour and properties of the natural stone.
A honed finish is identical to the polished finish, the surface is smooth but without glare or light reflections.
Abrasive brushes under high pressure generate a touch-sensitive and smooth surface of natural stone.
Blasting silica sand against the material through an air gun and generates very small craters.
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.
Splitting stone either by hand or by machine so that the surface exhibits a natural quarry texture.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
