Golden Ridge Satin

Stone Type:
Granite

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

Origin:
Espirito Santo, Brazil

Finish:
Satin

Golden Ridge is quarried from a bedrock quarry in the northern regions of Espirito Santo, Brazil and is considered a pegmatite granite. Pegmatite implies that the granite is composed of quartz, feldspar and mica in a coarse-grained igneous rock. A characteristic that will be apparent in some slabs is corundum, which is a form of aluminum oxide and, in its transparent ruby red state, is classified as a gem. Due to the qualities of the stone, the slabs are book-matched; meaning slab one and slab two will be cut and brushed to create a mirror image of each other. These are then kept in sequence, which allows for a consistent flow in pattern. During the brushing 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. Finally, for some slabs, a mesh backing is adhered to 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 Moon Yellow or Yellow River.
