Butterfly Gold granite is a natural stone quarried in the regions of Nova Venécia and Espírito Santo in Brazil .It presents a yellow base with spots alternating between brown and golden minerals that define this stunning material which offers minimal maintenance and sophisticated looks to interior and exterior designs which require a natural stone that offers a refined look 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, bathroom cladding and kitchen islands.
Granite slabs tend to be the largest in size across all natural stone groups which make it a cost effective material when a large slab covers most small to medium sized plots.
