Pietra Cardoso is a natural stone, fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock derived from an original shale-type sedimentary rock with a pale grey to light blue background and consistent pattern throughout its surface including veins in darker and lighter blue tones which are characteristic of this popular and extremely hard wearing stone.
