Fantasy Brown Granite (Aurora Fantasy Marble)

Fantasy Brown Granite is often described as Aurora Fantasy Marble. Immediately there is a contradiction in the way this beautiful natural stone is described. Technically Fantasy Brown is a dolomite1. It is harder than marble but nowhere near as hard as granite or quartzite. The reason for this hardness is due to the stone having gone through the dolomitisation2 process.

Fantasy Brown granite is quarried close to Paloda3 in Rajasthan India. This stone aesthetically looks like a marble (hence on our site we refer to it predominantly as Aurora Fantasy marble). This dolomite is made up of brown, cream, grey and sandy colours.

Below you can see a close-up image of a Fantasy Brown granite slab. There can be some variance between slabs of Fantasy Brown. One of the differences you will often see is the some slabs containing more brown and others containing more grey. If your design scheme relies on how much either of these colours are present, it is advisable to view an image of the slab which will be used in your project before making any purchase.

Fantasy brown can be used in an assortment of projects from kitchen worktops to flooring, bathroom vanity units and luxury furniture. For those looking for a dining table which has the look of a marble dining table but a durability which is closer to that of a granite dining table, Ivory Fantasy is a great material to use. This is equally true if you are looking for a stone coffee table. Although Fantasy Brown is more durable than marble it must be understood it is not as robust as a dark granite and you should endeavour to avoid spillages of harsh liquid such as red wines.

If you are looking for a natural stone with a creamy complexion and want a material which has a marble type texture but extra durability, the unique Fantasy Brown is perfect for you. This slab will blend in perfectly with a range of material including nearly all of the natural woods. Just remember to check your slab before you buy to make sure it will complement your design scheme.
