The Manchu Caviar Limestone is a refined finish material and increasingly popular for interior applications both in a tile format or for cubic fabrication. The matrix of the stone resembles tiny caviar eggs, hence the name. In a highly honed finish or antiqued finish the surface of the stone takes on an undulating, silky sheen which evolves over time to an exquisite patina.
