The Cabeca Veada is a light beige / whitish coloured limestone, with uniform background and medium hardness. It presents a brown coloured grain, whose main variations can go from thin to medium. The Cabeca Veada may present some ocasional irregular veinage or shades.
This is considered by many as the most important alternative to the Moleanos limestone, due to its similar appearance and medium hardness.
