New Kashmir White Granite is a natural stone originally found in Kashmir, India and quarried in regions of Keelaiyur, Nagapattinam district, Madurai, Tamil Nadu from where it is exported to the UK and Europe.
It presents a light creamy background including delicate darker yellowy tones and small grains and dots in brown and burgundy, sometimes with purple-ish tones. It displays a natural flow that offers unparalleled beauty and strength to interior and exterior architectural areas alike.
This stone is extremely and it is available in varied patterns enabling different looks suiting relevant design environments.
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.
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.
