The colouring of this stone is a white, cream and grey background with patches of brown splashed across the surface. Upon closer inspection, you can see this granite has a truly fabulous texture.
The brown patches of varying size have an almost metallic look to them with flecks of quartz. These flecks can be as small as a centimetre or greater than ten centimetres in size. This unique granite also has black feldspar2 markings and an abudance of clear quartz crystals.
