The kent in Pele De Tigre



Pele de Tigre is a part of the extended Portuguese family of Estremoz marbles. These all share a white background, but veining can vary in colour from soft pinks to grey/black tones. Pele de Tigre is at the latter end of the spectrum and displays strong veining and blooms of dark grey colour. The quarries are located around the village of Estremoz which lies inland east of Lisbon. Estremoz marble was much prized in the past when predominantly lighter white material was quarried but this material is scarce now, which has led to the increased popularity of materials such as Pele de Tigre, with its distinctive strong grey markings.
