Limestones are ornamental rocks with a high concentration of calcite as a mineral component. Found in different parts of the world, they can present fossils, veins and small chromatic variations between the plates. Widely used in world architecture for cladding facades, walls and monuments, today it has gained wide space in contemporary interior architecture, due to the subtlety of its colors and tones and the absence of striking veins and designs.

Main features

The limestone-based stone known as Limestone has 3 finishing options, being natural (rough), polished or light and has subtle tonality and uniformity of colors, in addition to variations between the shades of beige, sand and gray. As it has a clean appearance and blends perfectly with other surfaces, it is considered a trend in world architecture.


Limestone ornamental rock is widely used in indoor and outdoor environments, both in commercial and residential projects, being very well used for floor, wall, top, pool and fireplace edges.

As it is a natural stone, which has great porosity on the surface, the waterproofing of Limestone is extremely important.

We emphasize that the use of the waterproofing agent Dry-Treat ™, an Australian brand launched at ExpoRevestir 2009, prolongs the life of natural stones, such as limestone, because thanks to its composition, the molecules of the waterproofing agents penetrate beyond the surface of the stone, without blocking or suffocating it, creating deep protection.


Coming from Turkey, Spain and Brazil, natural stone is considered a trend in world architecture and gives a special touch to projects.


Located between the Mediterranean Sea and the Dead Sea, in the mountains of Judea, Jerusalem, one of the oldest cities in the world, is considered sacred ground for the three great religions of the world: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. It is from this region full of history, faith, struggles and fascination, that Alicante brings the “Jerusalem stones” exclusively to Brazil.

Sculpted by nature, the “Pedras de Jerusalem” are limestones (natural limestone stones) of rare beauty, with unique shades of beige, honey and gray, which can be polished, levigated (dull) and aged. Some have in their composition the presence of fossils and secular shells, visible on the surface. Thus, they add value to any project by lending its charm, both secular and timeless.

The “Jerusalem Stones” give balance and harmony to the environments. With multiple possibilities of application and finishing, in commercial or residential environments, indoors or outdoors, meeting the most diverse specifications in architecture, decoration and landscaping.

Curiosity: In addition to the Limestones, Alicante also brings Crema Delicato marble, from the Middle East. The only marble in the line, with elegant beige and gray tones, is available in 2 cm polished slabs.

Some of the characteristics of the “Jerusalem Stones”:

Limestone Honey Straw

Mystic Gray Limestone

Warm gray tones, accentuated by veins of charcoal with small black dots, are sold in polished, lightened or aged plates, with a thickness of 2 cm.

White Jasmine Limestone

Light beige tones, with grayish white pigments and subtle streaks of yellow, in addition to the presence of fossils as shapes. Shipped in raised plates with a thickness of 2 cm.

Limestone Golden Cloak

Warm beige tones, with smooth texture and accentuated movements. Shipped in raised plates with a thickness of 2 cm.

Limestone Old Land

Creamy appearance with varied movements and the presence of small fossils. Shipped in raised plates with a thickness of 2 cm.

The Limestone in Alicante

Alicante provides its consumers with more than 20 types of Limestone aesthetic standards.


Limestone Bateig Blue has calcium carbonate in its formation, coming from marine fossil materials such as bones and remains of marine organisms that accumulate for decades on end.

The genesis of limestone is the same for both nationals and imported ones, what will differentiate one from the other is nothing more than the tonality and designs of the material.
