Smokey Mountain Granite Swatch
Sizes/Thickness:3/4" (2cm slab)
1-1/4" (3cm slab)
Smokey Mountain is quarried from a boulder quarry in Brazil. The color tones and structure of this granite will vary between shipments because smaller boulders will produce a darker gold, while a larger boulder will often be lighter. 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 granite. Due to the difficulties in the quarrying process of this stone, it is a limited production color. Due to the qualities of the stone, the slabs are book-matched to allow for a consistent flow in pattern. 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. Finally, 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 Briolette, Chocolate Beaches, or Sucuri.
