The Alpinina is a red to pink colored limestone, with delicate grain but fairly irregular pattern composed by darker veins and strong calcite elements. This limestone is normally supplied with a mesh on its back, due to its considerable hardness. Its variations will depend on the calcite abundance as well as color tone variations.
The Alpinina is a fairly exclusively limestone, mostly due to its limited availability and high extraction costs. Quarries are opened for blocks extraction when convenient, being kept closed for most of the year.
Flexural strength: 52 kg/cm2; Volumetric weight: 2680 kg/m3; Open porosity: 0.7 %
The Alpinina is a preferential limestone to be used on decoration. Here, it is mostly found on bath design applications (sinks, shower trays), as well as diverse furniture (benches, table, countertops), but also on interior flooring, wall coverings.
