GRANITE Countertops

What Are the Different Colors of Granite?

Color is determined by the specific minerals of the stone. The colors range from a very soft, mottled gray, to a redder brown. Fine-grained stones are more likely to be red, whereas coarse-grained stones may be a brown-gray color. Stone is usually worked by using a blowtorch to remove the exterior layers of the stone. Red tumbled marble is typically one of the most expensive stone species. There are many colors, shades, and textures.
