Baltic Brown

Stone Type:
Granite

Sizes/Thickness:
3/4" (2cm slab)
1-1/4" (3cm slab)

Origin:
Kymi, Finland

Finish:
Polished

Baltic Brown is quarried in a bedrock quarry in Kymi, Finland. The size and color of each block is fairly consistent between shipments and, occasionally, the slabs may contain some black biotite crystal spots. The mineral composition of Baltic Brown is 55% Potash feldspar, 25% quartz, 11% plagioclase and 9% biotite and hornblende. During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the stone to fill in any natural pits, cracks or fissures that may exist. 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 it be sealed to extend its longevity.

This granite is also known as Baltic Rain or Bruno Baltico.
