Beneath the Surface

A History of Quality

The distinctive, dynamic Cala Blanco limestone is sourced from Portuguese quarries, where deposits exhibit a truly unique variability and beauty. Characterized by its high levels of fossilization and organic blooming, the composition of this limestone is ever-changing. Without a static selection of raw material, the expert stonemasons must constantly adapt to the fluctuations found throughout the stone. This means that the process of extraction can be quite complex and labor-intensive. Blocks are cut with absolute precision, and then meticulously inspected for quality, authenticity, density and appropriate coloring. Once fabricated, the stone is thoughtfully finished by hand to create a smooth, honed texture that’s ideal for contemporary spaces.

Why do we love it?

Variation disclaimer

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.
