Beaumanière is a trade name used for stones coming from several quarries located on the same plateau. The essential feature of these stones is to present an ocher-rust veining very irregular; we often speak of “Rubane” to describe these veining. But you can find slight differences in color or grain. Thus do we distinguish several types of Beaumaniere :
- The Beaumaniere Dark : rust veining, grained and dark beige background color. Sometimes with concentrations of shells. This is the least uniform type.
- The Beaumaniere Light : rust veining, fine grain and light beige background color.
- The Beaumaniere Classico : rust veining, medium grain and gray, beige background color. Sometimes with concentrations shells.
- The Beaumaniere Classico Light : rust veining, medium grain and gray, light beige background color. This is the most uniform.
Beaumaniere is cut with/against vein. It is a product which may have a little softer parts that must be eliminated or aged.They are semi-hard limestone.
Usual slab sizes are 200-240 cm x 120-130cm; quarry capacity allows for medium sized projects.
