Absolute Black Granite from StonePly
Absolute Black granite is another featured natural stone product that is available for bathroom and kitchen projects. To help you make a purchase decision, this article provides background on what it looks like and some common applications for this particular color and type of natural stone.
All About Absolute Black Granite
Absolute Black granite is defined as a dark igneous rock that must be quarried. Sometimes, the black granite that is sold is actually a basalt product, so it is important to know the difference.
Black granite made from basalt has an interlocking crystalline texture with little or no quartz or alkali feldspar, which is found in true granite and defines the difference. Black granite has plagioclase as well as at least one or two of these elements: biotite, pyroxenes, and hornblende.
There are actually many shades of black granite, which vary based on the place in the world where they are quarried, including such places as Sweden, South Africa, India and Canada just to name a few examples. Absolute Black granite from India has been particularly popular in recent years because of its wide availability and competitive pricing.
Applications for Absolute Black Granite
Black is a popular color choice for home décor because it offers the sleek look of luxury. It also looks great in many places in a home—from showers and countertops to floors and wall panels. This particular color of granite has been used for building stone, monuments, and building facings.
