Rosa Portugal


About

Rosa Portugal is a Pink marble. Rosa Portugal is quarried in Portugal. In architectural stone, the term marble refers to a metamorphic stone created from limestone and/or a serpentine that is capable of being polished. Since ancient times, palaces, government buildings, great monuments and the finest architectural works have been constructed from marble. Marbles durability in outdoor environments is proven by the ancient marble structures that still stand. Marble is however, not as durable as granite for outdoor construction or cladding panels and if a mirror polished surface is specified, the marble panel (if used outside) will lose its polish over time.
