The Rare Beauty of Super White Granite

There’s no doubting the beauty of Super White Quartzite, also known in the U.S. as Super White Granite. Available only from this particular quarry in Brazil, Super White is a gorgeous light colored stone that’s a compact, coarse metamorphic rock with small to intense veins in light, medium, or dark colors. Shades vary from white to very light tones of gray or beige. Some think the stone has the appearance of an aerial photograph or an icy arctic ocean.

With boulders of this exquisite surface still underground, the supply of quality slabs is scarce. But as the demand for light, or white, countertops increases in popularity, so, too, is the desire for this beautiful stone.

Homeowners and designers alike prefer Super White Granite to marble because, unlike marble, it’s naturally stain-proof. The durable surface may be treated, polished, or finished to create a specific final look as well as to increase antibacterial, scratch, heat, and stain resistant characteristics.

Quality slabs of Super White Granite may be in low volume, and for this reason may be more expensive. But it’s a stone that’s great for both interior and exterior use. However, a word of caution…note that a small sample of Super White Granite may not necessarily be representative of the entire slab since the stone varies widely in color and veining. If you’re working on a large project, be sure to approve enough samples to ensure that the blocks are taken from the same quarry face for matching purposes.

Hi 
Nice photos. Nice trip? 
I wouldn't advertise the low absorption and thermal characteristics too much. Because of the unusual distribution of quartz and dolomite in this rock there have been a number of slab failures due to differential thermal expansion involving surprisingly low heat.

Nowadays Most of the people like to use white granite in their home, although they are costlier than other stone, but I can say purchasing granite is a one time investment and life time useable. Apart from it, white granite has its own natural beauty and it gives a very marvelous look to our property. There are many places from where good quality granite is excavated from the ground.
