The Limra is a white coloured limestone, with very thin grain and quite uniform background. The Limra is mostly characterized by its plain and uniform white colour, as well as limited colour tone variation. It is one of the most uniform white limestones available in the market. Its main variations depend on the grain structure and background uniformity, but we can classify in two types:
– Limra Classic: the most common type, presenting thin grain and very uniform white colour and background.
– Limra Cloudy: a more exclusive type but nonetheless with certain commonly used on project, this type presents hardly any grain (very fine) but instead a shaded / clouds structure.
