Granite Venetian Gold
3/4" (2cm slab)
1-1/4" (3cm slab)
Origin:Espirito Santo, Brazil
Venetian Gold is quarried from a bedrock quarry in Espirito Santo, Brazil. It is a granite with a ground mass composed mainly of medium to coarsegrain yellow crystals that can, at times, appear in a light brown tone. Some veining and movement is common in this granite and can be expected from time to time. 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 Brazilian Gold, Juparana Light, New Venetian Gold, San Tropez, Vecchia Oro, or Yellow Ornamental.
