Milky White Granite (also known as Ivory Chiffon Granite) is a natural stone with a beige base with hints of pink and darker beige bands running through its surface that makes this an ideal material, for interior and exterior applications that require long-lasting stone that offers a warm feel to any ambient.
Milky White Granite is quarried in the region of Indai, India to the rest of the world, the UK and Europe where it is highly popular due to its unique characteristics.
Milky White is classified as granite rock which due to its mineral make up and composition including igneous rocks formed by slow crystallization of Magma on the Earth’s crust. Granite is mainly composed of pure quartz, mica and other natural minerals which compose this well-known granular stone, used by people since the ancient times of Egypt.
Famous monuments made out of granite include the iconic Mount Rushmore in USA, the Avukana Buddha statue in Sri Lanka and The Colossal Red Granite Statue of Amenhotep III in Egypt and more recently, The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park, London, United Kingdom.
Milky White granite is available in polished and honed finishes as standard and special finishes such as Satinato, Flamed and Bush Hammered are supplied to order.
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 this a cost effective material as in cases when a whole project can be covered with only one slab of material.
