Manchu Caviar Limestone is a refined finish material and increasingly popular for interior applications both in a tile format or for cubic fabrication. The matrix of the stone resembles tiny caviar eggs, hence the name. In a highly honed finish or antiqued finish the surface of the stone takes on an undulating, silky sheen which evolves over time to an exquisite patina.
Countertops, flooring, exterior paving, stair treads, veneer, wall cap or cubic fabrication.
