New Sunset Gold is quarried from a bedrock quarry in the Fujian Province, China. This granite often has visible oxidized iron spots and some veining making this stone very unique. 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 stone. 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. There will be noticeable variations in color and movement between pieces. Therefore, it is important and recommended that a range of this product be viewed before finalizing a purchase. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
This granite is also known as Almond Gold, Desert Wheat, Giallo Fantasia or Golden Garnet.
