Fernão de Magalhães

About the Stone

This grayish-toned limestone with a homogeneous appearance with dark blue veins alluding to the colors presented on the high seas on a stormy day, as such this stone suffers from high hardness and applicability.

Fernão de Magalhães was a Portuguese navigator who was notable for having led the first circumnavigation voyage of the globe, from 1519 to 1522, similarly.



A smooth, completely smooth and flat surface, which shows the true color of the materials, distinguishing itself from the polished one due to the lack of shine and detail.



The sandblasted finish is non-slip and semi-rough, flat enough and very suitable for outdoor paving, it shows more of the color of the material than the bush-hammered one, but less so than the brushed one.

Outdoor and Indoor


The bush-hammered finish is non-slip and especially suitable for floors and exterior cladding.
With a rough surface, the bush-hammered material is sufficiently flat and widely used for paving. Bearing in mind that this finish blurs the color of the materials, whitening them slightly and unifying the tones.

Outdoor and Indoor


Produced by exposing the stone to high temperatures, it should be noted that it is the only finish that alters the physical and mechanical properties of the stone, not all materials flame.

The flamed finish makes the surfaces non-slip at the same time as it fades the original color of the material and gives it the variations of a “face with different relief dimensions”, providing a more rustic finish.

Outdoor and Indoor


The scratched finish is one of the most expensive options in terms of finishes. Unique in the effect it gives to the stone, extremely elegant and resistant to the passage of time, this solution requires a specific cutter as well as more time for production.
