When we talk about Portugal, a country with a wide variety of granites and marbles, the first stone that comes to mind is undoubtedly rosa marble Portugal.
One thing on which most of the experts in the sector agree is that there is no single and defined type of rosa Portugal marble, but rather more shades, colors and types. Despite the importance that rosa marble Portugal has in the stone sector at an international level, from a commercial point of view it is not easy to be able to describe this stone clearly: there is no “typical” sample of rosa marble Portugal and it is almost impossible to show an exemplary image of rosa Portogallo marble due to the many irregularities of colors and shades of the material.
To better define which of the various types of rosa di Portogallo we are interested in, three technical characteristics are analyzed in particular: the presence or absence of veins, the quantity of veins present and the color of the veins. Consequently, based on the criteria set out above, the following varieties of rosa marble Portugal can be distinguished:

  • Clean rosa Portugal marble: pink background without veins. It turns out to be the rarest and most coveted variety.
  • Rosa marble Portugal with few veins. This is the variety that comes out mostly from the quarries of the Alentejo area: pink background with few brown, green or black veins.
  • Rosa marble Portugal with veins: consistent presence of veins of the same color as the stone.
