Limeyrat (Auberoche)

Located between Brive and Périgueux, the Limeyrat quarry provides the Auberoche stone. This limestone rock organized on 5 distinct benches, provides opportunities for shades of beige, ocher and gray. Its hardness makes it an excellent frost-resistant ground stone. This deposit has been available for extraction since ancient times. It flourished in the 19th century with flagstones, paving stones, borders and monuments that can be found throughout the South-West. It was reopened by Occitanie Pierres in 1996.
