Grey coloured limestone, with thin to medium grain and non-uniform background. This limestone is mostly characterized by the presence of strong signs of fossils with darker colour, sparsely distributed throughout the stone surface. It may present some grey colour variations.
The Jura Grey is a reference grey limestone from Germany, with considerable hardness. Its main variations depend mostly on the more or less abundance of darker fossils, as well as background uniformity. This limestone also presents a vein-cut variation that presents parallel vein along its surface, as well as a beige and grey mixed colour (also known as Cocktail).
