Twill Black

Stone Type:

Granite

Sizes/Thickness:

3/4" (2cm slab)
1-1/4" (3cm slab)

Origin:

Italy

Finish:

Twill

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. During the application of the twill finish, the surface of the Zimbabwe Black becomes grey. However, the true color of this stone is black therefore, any oils or liquids that come into contact with the stone will bring out the true, black color of this granite. Twill Black must be sealed using Miracle Enhance & Seal to return the granite to its true, black color. Using another sealer will cause the stone to look grey, however it WILL NOT keep this stone from turning black, and causing the color to look inconsistent once other oils and liquids come into contact with it.
