Galaxy Black is quarried from a boulder quarry located near the town of Markapur in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. The size and color of each block is fairly consistent between shipments. Arizona Tile focuses its purchases on the slabs with medium-sized gold flecks. It's possible to have some slight veining in this color, or the consolidation of the gold flecks. Because it is such a dense stone, and there are minimal micro fissures and pitting, no resin is applied to the surface. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
This granite is also known as Amethyst Black, Black Galaxy, Black Star Galaxy or Midnight Magic.
