The Fatima is a light beige / whitish limestone, with thin to medium grain and uniform background. It presents a very uniform structure, but some occasional thin lines and some darker brown spots. In terms of hardness, this is a soft limestone. Its variations depend on the grain and amount of lines and darker spots. The Fatima presents a very similar look to other major Portuguese limestones such as the Moleanos, Semi Rijo or Cabeca Veada.
The Fatima is mostly used in cladding applications, as well as coverings, masonry and stonework. Due to its softer nature, this limestone should be mostly used in interior applications with moderate traffic.
