Orissa Blue Granite is a natural stone originally found in India and quarried in the region of Orissa (Odisha, where it takes its name), from where it is exported to the UK and Europe where it has become popular in applications for kitchen worktop, bathrooms and flooring.
Orissa Blue Granite is a natural stone originally found in India and quarried in the region of Orissa (Odisha, where it takes its name), from where it is exported to the UK and Europe.
It presents a delicate mid-blue background, including small sized grains ranging in burgundy-to-purple hues, forming a consistent pattern in a material that offers unparalleled natural beauty and strength to interior and exterior architectural areas alike.
Orissa Blue Granite is an extremely versatile natural granite that is available in different finishes including honed polished, Anticato and bush hammered that enables different looks suiting relevant design environments.
Orissa Blue 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 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 that blue 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.
