Sandalus Satin

Stone Type:
Granite

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

Origin:
Brazil

Finish:
Satin

Sandalus Satin is quarried from a bedrock quarry in Brazil. This stone has a satin finish, which brings out more depth in the stone and provides a unique texture. The rich tones in this granite are due to oxidation over millions of years. Small fissures in the bedrock allowed water to penetrate the stone, which in turn reacted with the iron content to change the color. 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. Due to the qualities of the stone, the slabs are book-matched; meaning slab one and slab two will be cut and processed to create a mirror image of each other. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the stone to ensure safety while handling and fabricating the slab. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
