Bianco Antico--A popular lighter granite.
Costa Smerelda. This granite is very quiet with soothing greens.
Luna Pearl. If I were to get granite, I most likely would get luna pearl. Very tombstone-ish. I think it would look great honed. In addition to graveyards, it reminds me of composition notebooks (emo) and gumsole Vision Street Ware (old school.)
You know I had these. In red, exactly as pictured. Seventh grade was the year to be a victim. Hey, they were definitely better than white Keds.
Here is a slab that was purchased by someone who has way too much money and not enough aversion to the rusty looking streaks on one side of the stone. Yes, it is unique. Yes, it is dramatic. But no to putting two huge slabs dead center in your kitchen (which must be huge--no objections to that) and calling it an island. I do these things dramatic granite slabs are interesting and it is easy to delight in the hard beauty of nature when viewing them. But Somehow facing this every day in the kitchen makes me a little light headed. In a not so good kind of way.
Same slab, another angle. Oh, and did I mention that the two slabs (not including fabrication) cost $9,000? Well, now I did.
This granite looks very beautiful to me with the variations in veining, bold movement and actual rock looking slices throughout. However, I really can't think of an application in the home that would be appropriate for this. Pink in the kitchen is off putting. Like a sliced open salmon or chicken blood. Both don't whet my appetite.
Another bold pink stone that I find attractive, yet still it reminds me of a bloody butcher's apron when I try to put it in the context of a kitchen countertop.
