This dense limestone is versatile, allowing for a high satin finish and available in slabs, making it an excellent building material. It also accommodates a variety of finishes, including hand-chiseled and hammered finishes. Similar to other fine-grained stones, it responds well to hand-finishes. Percussive finishes not only lighten and unify the color rendering but also influence how the surface reflects light.

Pineapple Finish The pineapple finish introduces an irregular and bumpy texture to the stone, reminiscent of the distinctive pattern found on a pineapple. The unique appearance is characterized by a network of hexagonal or diamond-shaped eyes, much like those on the surface of a pineapple. Just like the fruit, the stone’s surface is robust, tough, and covered in small, raised sections. Stone craftsmen meticulously apply the pineapple finish using chisels and hammers, with each strike enhancing the stone’s individual texture and character.
