It’s a compacted limestone, which is very suitable for terraces, pool decks, and can also be used inside the swimming pool. In full sun application it doesn’t need any sealer. Honed finish is not very slippery. Ceara Limestone is formed in a Sabkha environment. The pellets (grains/balls) of lime, (broken) fossils and foraminifers are cemented by translucent lime cement (called sparite) typical for a warm shallow tidal environment of deposition. This type of sedimentation and cementation resulted in a densely packed stone without much porosity and permeability, resulting in low water absorption. The cream colour is derived from the iron carbonates, as there is close to zero permeability these iron ions are not further oxidized into brown patches. This makes this material very well suited for outdoor use as decorative natural stone for cladding and flooring both in and outdoors.
