Twill Black is produced from Zimbabwe Black granite. Blocks of Zimbabwe Black are shipped to Italy where they are cut into slabs and treated with a water jet application to achieve the “twill” finish. It is very difficult for a fabricator to duplicate this look on the edge detail; therefore, for kitchen countertops, it is recommended to do a 45% miter to simulate the twill look on the edge. Another option would be to create a honed finish on the edge detail. If a darker black tone is desired, the use of “Enhance and Seal” will darken the granite, but will need to be applied every six months to maintain this look. The use of a regular sealer will keep the color tone the same as the current look of the slabs; however, a small area should always be tested prior to sealing the entire slab to determine the final outcome.
