BACKGROUND

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.
