Product Description

African Rainbow granite is a multicoloured natural stone from South Africa. This natural granite has a pattern in several hues on an backdrop ranging from beige to light green tones, which is characteristic of this particular type.

Some formations of African Rainbow granite can also be found in Namibia with more predominant beige background. The material can be used in internal applications such as kitchen worktops, flooring and cladding as well as externally for facades, patios, balconies and terraces.

Its low water absorption makes it ideal for countertop applications and its toughness is comparable only to that of quartz stones.

This natural product come in slabs ranging from 2800x1800mm to 3200x1950mm which allows for large pieces without seems and is available in standard thicknesses of 20mm and 30mm.

African Rainbow granite is available in a polished finish as standard and can be sourced in honed and flamed too.

Granite is a magmatic rock which is made from quartz and feldspar amongst other minerals. In the first place, it occurs naturally below the earth’s surface. Secondly, the process takes place over hundreds of thousands of years, resulting in an extremely strong stone.

It is also important to note Granite has been used over many civilizations in construction of buildings, monuments and paving. Most recently, it has become a material of choice for decoration. If a long history of it use over time was not enough, granite can be seen almost everywhere. In the same way, residential homes, commercial properties and restaurants use it too.

Natural Granite offers unique and exotic looks, durability and strength. Not only that, but it also brings investment value to any property in which it is applied. Moreover, and when it comes to performance, the stone is great. The lack of calcium in granite ensures the stone does not etch like marble when exposed to acid present in lemons, oranges, etc

Besides this, granite varies in shape, patterns and colours. As an example, slab sizes will usually cover areas of between 5.5 metre square and 6.5 metre square. In other words, is ideal for large areas such as kitchen islands as it can be installed seamlessly.

When it comes to thicknesses, 20mm and 30mm are the most popular. It comes in standard finishes in polished, honed, satin and leather. This significantly allows for many options in terms of both design and style.
