A coarse-grained, yellow-grey granite with fairly consistent textur that can change in pattern and color from batch to batch, making each piece unique
Santa Cecilia granite is a natural stone from Brazil comprising a delicate pattern of grey and soft brown spots on a delicate white base background.
Santa Cecilia is quarried in different regions of Brazil and exported to UK and Europe where white, organic stone is very much in line with current trends of interior and architectural design.
This stone is classified as granite rock due to its mineral composition. It is a tough material that is suitable for indoor as well as outdoor applications. Different names are generally due to regional variations and/or commercial aspects such as branding. Other names include Bordeaux River granite, Cold Spring, Montecarlo Bordeaux, Bianco Spring, White Spring granite, Typhoon Bordeaux
Famous monuments made out of granite include the iconic Mount Rushmore in USA, the Avukana Buddha statue in Sri Lanka and The Colossal Red Granite Statue of Amenhotep III in Egypt and recently, The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park, London, United Kingdom.
Santa Cecilia granite is available in polished and honed finishes as standard and special finishes such as Satinato, Flamed and Bush Hammered are supplied to order.
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.
