Shivakashi granite is a natural stone quarried in the regions of Virudhunagar, Thiruthangal in India.
It presents a creamy rose background including crystalline grey and burgundy minerals on a very fine grained pattern ,which defines this stunning material.
Shivakashi is ideal to display in kitchens, walls and floorings due to its minimal maintenance requirements and sophisticated looks in both interior and exterior designs which require a natural stone that offers a refined appearance 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.
