Azul Macaúbas due to high concentration of quartz is an extremely hard stone that allows a typical polishing of semi-precious stones.
It can be used inside and outside and is particularly suitable for pools coatings since it is not affected by chemical agents used to treat water.
Its main feature is the rare blue color due to the presence of dumortierite.
