Did you know that Prestige Marble & Granite specializes in unique and rare natural stone? These “designer” stones are sourced from quarries around the world, in places such as Brazil, India, Ukraine, Turkey and Africa, to name a few. Most natural granite slabs suitable for use in countertop applications, regardless of their rarity or abundance, have similar inherent qualities of strength and durability, but exotic granites are rarer in terms of color, pattern and beauty.
While the more abundant granite varieties often have more uniform and consistent veining and patterning, designer or exotic stones will generally have more irregular patterns, also known as “movement,” which is desirable. Colors in high-end designer stones are rarer, or even one-of-a-kind.
It is the rare, precious materials of our exotic collection that will ensure a unique look for your home improvement project, nearly guaranteeing a kitchen countertop or bathroom vanity not seen anywhere else, or certainly not in your area.
Here’s a look at four exotic granites from our designer collection. Keep in mind that pictures don’t exactly convey the true colors and beauty of the granite, and patterns within a color will vary from slab to slab. We invite you to visit our showroom to view these unique beauties in person!
Dramatic and stunning “Fusion” granite from Brazil has swirls of blues, grays, greens and oranges, highlighted by cream fine veins. It reminds us of viewing the earth from space!
Volga Blue Granite
Extremely hard and durable, Volga Blue granite from Ukraine is a stunning stone that has earned its reputation as one of the most attractive stones on the market. Dense, black mineral deposits give an effect that almost looks like shattered glass, but it’s the exquisite blue mineral deposits that give this stone its name.
This extraordinary Audax polished granite from Brazil mixes rich chocolate and glittery gold tones with warm charcoal gray hues, broken up with chunks of light-reflecting quartz.
Magma Gold Granite
Magma Gold from Brazil has a stunning combination of black, charcoal, rusts, and glittering gold streaks of high variation. This natural stone demands being the center of attention in any room with its dramatic veins and true organic beauty.
