Antique Brown granite is a chocolate coloured stone with an array of dark brown crystals. These crystals provide Antique Brown with a texture which is both beautiful and unique for a granite. This stone commonly possesses a slight metallic twinkle which is caused by light reflecting of mica deposits1. It is not unusual to see fine veins which look like slight cracks or scratches across the surface of this stone. This is nothing to worry about and is simply a characteristic of this granite (in the close up image above you can see this characteristic).
The location in which Antique Brown is quarried is in the Huíla Province of Angola2.
You can see this beautiful brown granite used in bathroom vanity units, granite worktops and bespoke furniture. It combines extremely well with natural woods such as oak and can often be seen in oak and granite dining tables. The beautiful texture of this granite makes it a wonderful substitute for marble.
