Tropic Brown

Stone Type:
Granite

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

Origin:
Najran, Saudi Arabia

Finish:
Polished

Tropic Brown is quarried from a boulder quarry in Najran, Saudi Arabia. It is a homogeneous granite composed mainly of intense brown crystals and a smaller amount of black biotite crystals. Although, it is common to have some black biotite crystals as large as the size of a silver dollar. 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 Desert Brown, Najara, Najara Brown, or Tropic Taz.
