Desert Canyon

Stone Type:
Granite

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

Origin:
Brazil

Finish:
Polished

Desert Canyon is quarried from a bedrock canyon in Brazil. This granite will range from brown and gold, to blue and gray, all within the same slab. Every shipment will be unique in its look and can also change within the bundle. During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the slab 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. Due to the qualities of the stone, the slabs are book-matched; meaning slab one and slab two will be cut and polished to create a mirror image of each other. These are then kept in sequence, which allows for a consistent flow in pattern. Over millions of years, water has penetrated deep into this stone through small cracks and fissures, causing the iron oxide and other minerals to oxidize. It is this process that produces the rich, vibrant gold tones that are visible in this stone. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that it be sealed to extend its longevity.
