If you’re on the hunt for a black granite supplier and would like to know more about this versatile surface material, this post is for you! First, we’ll explore the uses and qualities of black granite, then we’ll take a look at some of the gorgeous options available at Cosmos SurfacesTM.

What is Granite?

Granite is an igneous rock – that is to say, it’s a type of magmatic rock, formed by the slow crystallization of magma below the Earth’s surface. The use of granite dates back thousands of years. Throughout Europe, structures built with granite centuries ago remain standing to this day. Today, granite is still commonly found in bridges, buildings, paving, monuments and other external structures. Granite is highly durable and incredibly heat-, crack- and scratch-resistant. This makes it an excellent choice for indoor applications, including:

  • Kitchen Countertops
  • Floor Tiles
  • Backsplash
  • Bathroom Tiles
  • Mantelpieces
  • Staircases

Polished granite has a glossy finish and adds both elegance and functionality to any space. Granite surfaces are easy to clean and maintain with warm water and soft cloth. The stone is a dense material, one of the hardest natural stones, with a coarse-grained structure. In fact, the term granite is derived from the Latin “granum,” which means “grain.”

Types of Black Granite

When choosing black granite for your kitchen, bathroom, or outdoor space, it is important to know that black granite exhibits tonal variations depending on where it is sourced. For example, black granite from India is considered “true black.” On the other hand, black granite sourced from Africa naturally has white or gray spots, and is dyed with food-grade dye to appear blacker. This does not affect the quality of the stone in any way, but it can affect its price. Your black granite supplier will be able to provide expert advice on the best black granite for your application.

Color of the Month: Mosaic Blue

This month’s featured trending color is Pantone 18-4528, Mosaic Blue! The Pantone Color Trend Report says, “The teal Mosaic Blue displays an air of mystique, grace and depth of feeling.”

Blue Fossil, or Brazilian Fossil, is a very unique type of quartzite due to its pentagonal pattern. Like a turtle’s shell or dinosaur’s spine, the crystals of Fossil Blue form layers of pentagons across the surface. Upon closer inspection, one can see veins of red and brown border the natural shapes. Quartzite is resistant to scratching, staining, and fading, and the beauty is unmatched.
