The Moleanos Blue is a preferential limestone to be used on interior flooring applications. It is also commonly found on interior wall coverings, bath design and interior decoration. Due to its considerable hardness for a limestone, this is also used on exterior applications such as cladding, but also paving, if with right thickness and size.
This is an incredibly popular limestone in countries like the UK or USA, with a consistent and growing demand.
