Select the exact slab(s) that will be used to produce your granite countertop. Granite is a natural material with variations in color, tone, grain and pattern. No two slabs of the same granite color are alike. From exotic blues, deep plums, pale hues of gold and beige, granite can set the mood within a space. Found within this stone's color palettes are numerous surface patterns, varying dramatically from the predictable speckled appearance to the fluid movements of heavy veins. The irregular lines present in many stones are due to mineral impurities that account for the uniqueness of each slab. There is nothing like natural granite. Each slab is made by nature.
