Uses and applications of Lumaquela Rosa

Lumaquela Rosa is a fossiliferous limestone or lumaquela. This family of stones is characterized by being formed from fossil clasts (rocks composed of broken pieces of older rocks) of a large size resulting in a very porous surface.

In addition to the typical characteristics of all fossiliferous limestone, Lumaquela Rosa has an intense pink hue and an unusual hardness for this type of material, making it an ideal stone for many uses and applications.


Facade Cladding

Among the most prominent uses of this limestone is its use on facades. It is an intense pink stone of a very particular colour, the reason why on many occasions it is combined with other stones. Nevertheless, it is often used exclusively with very attractive results. Everything is a matter of taste.

It can also be used for interior walls as a decorative element to any room.


Flooring and Pool Edging

Lumaquela Rosa, despite having a porous surface, is an ideal material for use on floors, especially on exterior terraces. Its ability to withstand virtually any surface finish also allows it to be used on interior floors thanks to the polished finish when the pore is covered.

In addition, this stone doesn’t get warm in the sun, doesn’t cause slips and doesn’t accumulate water, making it an ideal material for garden patios, beach and swimming pool edging.


Other Uses of Lumaquela Rosa

The pink is a very striking and particular colour, so Lumaquela Rosa stone can be used in a myriad of projects, both for construction and decoration.

Lumaquela Rosa is a fossiliferous limestone with the hardness of a marble or a resistant limestone, so you can use it for the most diverse purposes.
