Different Types of Spanish Red Limestone

Updated:2012-10-08 16:07:17
As everyone known that the stone industry in Spain is quite developed, which has widely varieties of natural stone, here we will mainly introduce two kinds of red limestone.
The first one is the Rojo Alicante, which is one of the most well-known red limestone from Spain having been present in the international markets for decades. But the reserves of this material, extracted in the province of Alicante, are now coming to an end. There was a time when about 45000 cubic metres of this material were annually extracted, now the figure is barely 5000 cubic metres from the 3 quarries functioning currently and the reserves are expected to last no more than a decade or so. The colour of Rojo Alicante, still very popular as a decoration material, is with veins and of colour clear/dark red. China, as always, is the biggest market, but in Middle East countries such as Lebanon and Egypt, Rojo Alicante continues to be in high demand. Rojo Alicante is a highly crystalline material and the finishes most common are polished, honed and sanded.

Another one we would like to introduce is the ROJO CEHEGíN. The quarries located in Cehegin the province of Murcia. The quarries have been exploited for more than 50 years and can produce between 1200 and 1500 cubic metres per month. This is a red marble with white and grey veins and the red colour in some quarries tends to be specially dark. Its principal applications are in pavements and claddings and for decoration. The more common finish is polish, though it admits other finishes. The aged and the sanded finish look very well with this material as also the split finish.
