Jorge Álvares

About the Stone

Dark blue and gray limestone, characteristics much appreciated for different types of applications that require a darker stone with personality.

Jorge Álvares is widely known for being the first westerner to reach China by sea, more than 500 years ago contributing to the beginning of relations between east and west.

Finishes

Softened

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.

Indoor

Sandblasted

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

Bushammered

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

Flamed

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

Polished

A glossy surface that highlights the full coloring of the materials as well as their specific characteristics.
Totally flat and smooth, this finish conveys nobility and refinement and enhances all the beauty and strength of natural stone.

Indoor

Scratched

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.
