Verde Lavras granite is a natural stone from Brazil .It presents a light to medium green base with a random pattern of bright medium sized grains in shades and coloured light green, emerald and black minerals that define this stunning material which offers minimal maintenance and sophisticated looks to interior and exterior designs which require a natural stone that offers a refined look with incredible performance characteristics and strength.
Granite is an ideal stone to work with, offering the possibility of having seamless pieces across large surfaces such as kitchen worktops, bar counters, bathroom cladding and kitchen islands.
Granite slabs tend to be the largest in size across all natural stone groups which make it a cost effective material when a large slab covers most small to medium sized plots.
