Limestone Balcan White

Balcan white is not a marble but a limestone, a kind of calcareous pumice stone, less consistent but lighter than marble.

Balcan White is a material recently discovered in a quarry located in the Balkans area. You can find it in two different variations: coarse-grained and fine-grained. The coarse-grained version shows evident beige and black almonds with a very clear contrast of colours while the fine-grained version shows almost invisible dots in beige, black, yellow and white shades.

Balcan White type of use

Both variants of Balcan White, the fine-grained and the coarse-grained, have a medium-high availability but this does not mean that it is not an elegant and valuable material; with its beige background and without too many colour variations it is perfect both in interior and exterior projects, such as, for example, swimming poolside.

A wide range of finishing

The elegance of Balcan White can increase its aesthetic value thanks to some specific processes:
