Virginia Mist granite is a natural stone from the United States of America. It presents dark grey base with a particular pattern that includes very fine black minerals which defines this soapstone looking material that 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.
