Mocca Juparana is quarried from a bedrock quarry in the Erongo Region of Namibia. It is a granite with a heterogeneous pattern where medium to fine-grain areas alternate with coarse to very coarse-grain areas. The color runs from beige to yellow with variations in tone and intensity. Both the colors and grain sizes will have random variances, giving the material movement, but no definite orientation. Grey and black veins may occur, but not frequently. During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the slabs to fill in any natural pits, cracks or fissures that may exist in the stone. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the slab. It is possible for some of the more minute pits that are too small to effectively hold the resin, to reopen during other finishing stages. However, this will not detract from the overall quality or appearance of the stone. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
This granite is also known as African Gris Carmel, Arabian Sun or Juparana Arandis.
