A country cousin to our Golden Granite, this is one of our most popular and versatile granites. The color ranges from white to gold with fine tan-gold or rust as the standard when honed or polished. With a smaller more compact grain size, this stone tends to have a lower rate of water absorption. The hardness of this material renders a very uniform texture with our hand finishes. Used in pavers, main entry headers, veneer, stairs, coping, caps, window surrounds and fireplaces, the most popular are the lychee, adze, sandblast and mushroom finishes. This is a dream material for designers, carvers and masons.
Pavers, cobbles, treads/risers, veneers, wall caps, coping or architectural details.
