A red granite that can change in colour and pattern pretty dramatically from batch to batch. Its is available in 20mm & 30mm thickness, slabs and tiles.
Juparana Bordeaux granite is a natural stone originally found in Brazil and quarried in the region of Espirito Santo, from where it is exported to the UK and Europe.
It presents a yellowy background with hints of burgundy; small and medium sized grains and shades of earthy brown and beige minerals, forming a consistent pattern that offers unparalleled natural beauty and strength to interior and exterior architectural areas alike.
Juparana Bordeaux (also known as Crema Bordeaux granite) is an extremely versatile material that is available in different finishes including honed polished, Anticato and bush hammered that enables different looks suiting relevant design environments.
Juparana Bordeaux granite is suitable for use in kitchens, walls and floorings. It requires little maintenance whilst providing sophisticated looks in both interior and exterior applications that require natural stone that offers a refined appearance 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, bathrooms, cladding, and islands.
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.
