Top 6 Granite Colours Around the World

Top 6 Granite Colours Around the World

In this post we look at the top 6 granite colours in the world. Granite is a hard stone ideal for use in high-traffic applications, including kitchen worktops, interior and exterior flooring. Many retail and urban developments also use granite in external landscaping because of its beauty combined with its hard-wearing, anti-slip properties.

When it comes to interior design and particularly kitchen design, despite the rise of quartz and sintered stone surfaces in the market, granite is still the king of stone surfaces because of its inherent beauty and unique, natural characteristics, to many.

Have a look at the top 6 granite colours in the world below:

Black Granite

Black Granite

Our black granite range features many stunning examples, like this San Gabriel granite.

Leading producers of black granite:

  • India
  • Australia
  • South Africa
  • Sweden

Black granite is definitely one of the most popular choices, in regarding home decorations, this is mainly due to its effective hue. As granite is an all natural stone it varies within textures, because of this black granite can appear to have particles of brown,white and blue running throughout the stone. The high quartz present within black granite gives the surface a well textured appearance, even after cutting and polishing. The base texture and overall visual representation is also very consistent.

Blue Granite

Blue Granite

Labrador Claro is a beautiful example of blue granite available from Marble & Granite Designs.

Leading producers of blue granite:

  • Spain
  • Brazil

Blue granite is also known as Azul granite. The rocks that crystallise to form the stone are a transcendent blue. Azul granite is the second most popular, right after black granite, this is mostly because of the wide range of colour and variety you get with this particular type of stone. This type of granite contains patterns of white, black, grey and various other shades of blue.

White Granite

White Granite

Splendor White is one of our most popular varieties of white granite.

Leading producers of white granite:

  • Italy
  • Brazil
  • China

There’s no ‘true’ white granite due to the chemical compositions and stratification involved. Due to the natural composition of granite you’ll never have two pieces that are the same, which adds to it’s unique and elegant form. There’s always a variant with white granite, with slightly distorted shades of black and grey over a white base or a combination of ivory.

Green Granite

Green Granite

Verde Ubatuba: Great name, beautiful green granite surface. One of our favourites.

Leading producers of green granite:

  • India
  • Norway

Green granite is seen to be very versatile due to the large range of colours provided by the hue. its said that green granite has the largest variations of hue compared to any other colour of granite. Although the base colour of the stone always remains green, depending of which country its distributed from, the complimentary colours within the granite will differ. Green granite distributed from Norway usually has a more bluish & aqueous appearance, compared to the granite distributed by India, which tends to be complimented by shades of pink and grey. There’s also other forms of green granite that include black striping, or even metallic flex such as gold.

Pink Granite

Pink Granite

Crema Julia is just one of a whole range of stunning pink granite surfaces available from Marble & Granite Designs.

Leading producers of pink granite:

  • China
  • Brazil

Pink granite, also known as rose granite, is the rarest type of granite available, this is mainly because  the chemicals needed tol create this colour of stone rarely join together, in large enough proportions to react so. its still somewhat easy to find gfranite with a red base colour, however its relatively unusual to find ‘true’ rose as a base colour.

The base colour of this stone is usually varies from rose to lavender, and the complimentary colours within the stone include white and yellow.

Gold & Copper Granite

Gold Granite

Gold granite surfaces like this Napoli Gold Granite are striking & beautiful.

Leading producers of gold and copper granite:

  • Italy
  • Brazil

Although metallic granite can be found all over the world, Brazil and Italy are the leading distributors of gold & copper granite, with maximum deposits located. theses metallic hues are popular choices for designer constructions, as they include elements such as copper, gold and any other common metals within the region.

The base colours for this stone are usually white, black or grey with sharp contrasting metallic hues as complimentary colours running throughout the stone, which creates rich designs in home decor.

Heathrow Airport Terminal 4

Here at Marble and Granite Designs, we have been involved in a project too help build a new hotel in the biggest airport in Europe at Heathrow. Within the hotel there is two sides, Holiday Inn Express (HIX) and Crowne Plazza (CP).

 

This hotel consists of Creama Unimarble from Brachot and the beautiful Natural granite Antique Brown in the bathrooms along side River White in the hotel rooms.

 

The Holiday Inn Express has the Creama Unimarble.

This Material was used for Vanaties and Thresholds for the bathrooms. The vanaties have been mitered to give a clean, crisp look with a minimal visible joint line.

These colours, in this hotel adds beauty but simplicity. These colours allow the rooms to enable each room to have it’s own individuality with a different part of the stone which makes the granite so special and so unique.
With this project coming to an end we have used 250 tonne of Natural and Reconstituted stone for Vanity tops, Floor tiles, Bedside boxes, Luggage racks, bath panels, cistern panels and shower plinths.
Following on from this we have accepted the new contract to help build another hotel in Heathrow due to start in October 2018.
