A very popular granite with very dark green and black appearance and a golden vein with blue/silver flecks
Ubatuba granite is a natural stone from the regions of Ubatuba, Sao Paolo and Bahia in Brazil. It presents an intense green base with a luminous pattern of crystals in lighter green and black pearly 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.
Ubatuba 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.
Ubatuba 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.
Granite is a magmatic rock which is made out of quartz and feldspar amongst other minerals. It occurs naturally below the earth’s surface over hundreds of thousands of years resulting in an extremely strong stone that has been used over many civilizations in construction of buildings and monuments and paving. Most recently, granite has become the material of choice for residential homes as it offers unique and exotic looks, durability, strength and investment value to any property in which it is applied. The lack of calcium in granite ensures the stone does not etch like marble when exposed to acid present in lemons, oranges, etc
Slab sizes will cover areas of between 5.5 metre square and 6.5 metre square, which ensures large areas such as kitchen islands are installed seamlessly.
Standard thicknesses for this White Dallas granite are 20mm and 30mm and it comes in standard finishes in polished, honed and special order satin and bush hammered which allow for many options in terms of both design and style.
