The Nouveau Collection
Limestone — Portugal
A beautiful, highly-consistent light cream limestone with very little fossilization. Because of its incredible density, Blanco Duro is a versatile and durable option, ideal for high-traffic areas in both residential and commercial projects.
A History of Quality
The beautiful and bright Blanco Duro is sourced in one of the largest natural stone repositories in central Portugal. Formed over millions of years in a marine environment, this durable limestone is characterized by its speckled light brown fossilization, subtle variations and consistent creamy beige coloration. Blocks are carefully selected for extraction before being transported to a local factory for a comprehensive quality inspection and fabrication. After slabs are sawn from each block, individual sections are cut to size by order. Expert stonemasons oversee every step of the process, from the quarry to final shipment, ensuring superior precision in its production, and a pristine appearance for all new installations.

Because of the individualized nature of the materials we sell, many of the products have significant variation in size, shape, color, texture and thickness. These irregularities are inherent in hand-made and natural materials such as ours. It is the responsibility of the owner/purchaser and those acting on behalf of the owner such as the designer, architect, contractor or installer to verify that the material specified is appropriate for its final application and to review and approve all materials before the materials are shipped. Samples are available on request. Samples are given as an indication of a particular product and are for reference only. Due to the inherent variation in the size, shape, thickness, texture and color of our materials, individual samples cannot be considered exact representations.
Through expert photography, every effort has been made to faithfully represent our products and materials on this website. However, due to lighting and color variations, no picture can be considered an exact representation of the material being shown.
