  • Limestone
    Portuguese Limestone

    Portuguese limestone is a natural stone cut straight from the earth. The stone is a sedimentary limestone with characteristic darker veins and lighter background, intermingled with fossils and blooms. This limestone suite is pre-sealed and manufactured from 100% natural material.

    Gallery limestone suites are constructed from Portuguese limestone, which is a natural material so each piece is unique and will contain veining, fossils and ‘blooms’ which are not defects.

    If you want a more consistent look to your fireplace, choose from either one of our micro-grained marble fireplaces or a jurastone suite.

     
    Aegean Limestone Aegean Limestone is manufactured from 100% natural material, as such the mantel you purchase will be unique due to variations in fossil formation, veining and colour. All our Agean limestone surrounds are pre-sealed.
