The material can have variations of rusted colored veins at times, a result from the oxidation process over millions of years.
Like most of natural stones, there may be slight pitting which is corrected by a resin application during the polishing process. This is a granite that can be book matched under request.
Every slab of granite is unique and extremely durable. Made up in its majority by quartz and feldspar, this granite has unique mix of a light background and dark patterns which makes it a distinctive choice for kitchen worktops.
