White Paradise granite is quarried from a bedrock quarry in Brazil. This granite has a creamy white background with varying shades of grey throughout. There are small garnet crystals in this stone as well as various sizes of quartz and feldspar crystals. Randomly occurring black spots or veins are also typical of White Paradise granite. 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. 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 does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone. Due to the qualities of the stone, the slabs are book-matched; meaning slab one and slab two will be cut and polished to create a mirror image of each other. These are then kept in sequence, which allows for a consistent flow in pattern. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the stone to ensure safety while handling and fabricating the slab or tile. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that it be sealed to extend its longevity.
