Tura Stone

Tura Stone is a natural Egyptian limestone which is famous for its unique white color tone, Tura limestone was the finest and whitest of all Egyptian quarries, so tura limestone was used to cover the stones of the richest tombs.

Primarily great pyramids were brilliant white. The pyramids stones were coated by an outer layer of highly polished Tura Limestone, These coating stones were cut to give the pyramids a gentle slope and believed to reflect the sun’s rays, unlike what they look like today with the outer stones more or less forming very large steps.

Tura Stone quarry had been the primary quarry for limestone in historical Egypt. The site, which was recognized through the historical Egyptians as Troyu or Royu, is placed approximately midway among modern Cairo and Helwan.

We do exportation of this Stone to the European market especially France, Belgium, UK, and Italy.
