GRANITE- THE SUPERSTONE!
HUGE VARIETY OF GRANITE ONLY AVAILABLE AT BHANDARI MARBLE GROUP:
WHAT IS GRANITE?
Granite is a natural stone that is quarried in many countries around the globe. Granite and Quartzite are the names that are used interchangeably wherever stone tile and slabs are sold. True Granite is a porous, igneous rock that has any number of chemical compositions that include a quartz base. Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that has a higher percentage of quartz in its chemical makeup than granite does. For the record, true quartzite is harder than true granite. But, don’t get too caught up in the name of the stone because regardless of which it is, geologically speaking, it has the same purpose.

DETAILS OF SOME COMMON TYPES OF GRANITE
White Granite is harder to find than black or brown granite. All granite and Marble gets its name from the background color. Some white granite slabs have veins similar to marble while others may have a spattering of freckles in either brown, gray, black or red and may include a sprinkling of blue throughout.
White granite is a granite that is composed primarily of quartz minerals. The small black specks in the granite above are likely small amphibole grains.
RIVER WHITE GRANITE
River white on shaker style cabinets with laminate floors that look like hardwood. Since this design can be stretched along the length of the kitchen work surface, it can make any countertop look longer than it actually is. Like the currents of a river, you’ll find that the sweeping lines of this white granite countertop perfectly complement any kitchen design.
KASHMIR WHITE GRANITE
Kashmir white granite with a glass tile backsplash and chrome faucet.
If you’re looking for a white stone with just a bit of texturing, choosing Kashmir White Granite is an excellent choice. The salt and pepper look of the stone discreetly cloaks small countertop messes, which are harder to hide on light monochromatic countertops that have less variation. If you’re having trouble finding it at your local stone yard cotton white is a similar alternative.
HIMALAYAN WHITE GRANITE
This stone is one of the most grey of the white choices, which means it would add contrast to any light colored kitchen. It has even been used by some designers as a marble substitute for projects with a lower price point. It’s one of the cheaper options on this list, which means you can start your remodel immediately without any regrets.
So if the stone you pick is completely black it’s likely gabbro, which makes for an excellent kitchen work surface, but you should know that all black slabs aren’t really granite even though that’s most likely what they are being called.
ABSOLUTE BLACK GARNITE
This is the purest black granite that you’ll find, with little to no traces of any other colors found in it. Absolute black is a great choice to create the high contrast black and white kitchen you may have been day dreaming about and it looks great polished or honed.
BLACK GALAXY GRANITE
Black galaxy is the perfect name for this variety as it channels the look of a rural night sky. With small white flecks resembling the stars, this is a more family-friendly choice than absolute black since the flecks will help mask any messes and smudges, much like ubatuba does.
BROWN PEARL GRANITE
Brown pearl granite counters polished to a highly refelective surface with a glass tile backsplash and chrome hardware. These brown pearl counters are polished to such a highly reflective surface you can see the faucet in them.
For those looking for a something a bit on the wild side, brown pearl granite is a great choice. Brown pearl incorporates brown, black, and white to create a look that nearly resembles a mosaic and looks much more expensive than it actually is.

For even more options, any slab can be finished in a variety of different ways.
A polished finish can bring elegance to the look by giving off a reflective mirror-like finish to the stone.
A leathered surface is textured and is not glossy at all. They’re great if you’re concerned about etching or staining because the imperfections will be less noticeable.
A happy medium between polished and leathered is honed. Honed finishes are smooth, matte finishes, that may still be slightly glossy depending on when the fabricator stopped working the stone. Like leathered, honed is also a great choice if you want to hide any wear and tear the stone may endure.
This honed work surface will hide wear and tear much better than a polished one.
Flamed has a bumpier finish that is perfect for any heavy duty usage from outdoor kitchens to shower flooring.
Granite is the most versatile and budget-friendly choice of any stone, which makes it the perfect way to add luxury to your home without breaking the bank.
