Different Granite Colours

Back to Home
Does granite typically come in a variety of colours? I’ve seen granite colours that range from dark blacks to reds and blues. Is this a natural colour, or is it man made? Does this diminish the quality of the granite in any way?
 
Thanks,

Indeed granite naturally comes in a wide array of colors. There are a number of different naturally blue stones but you are wise to ask about this. A good salesperson should point out color-enhanced stones to you so you can make an informed decision. Some stones, not even necessarily blue, are color-enhanced. Take a look at the sides and back of the slab. If it is a lighter colored stone with small dribbles of a much darker color on the sides, it is likely color-enhanced. One big issue with color-enhanced stones is that they can fade with prolonged sun exposure and you’d have to get the color touched-up. Color-enhanced stones are great for a downstairs bar or anywhere natural light is minimal. Color-enhancing does not affect the quality of the stone in any way.

There really are so many different granite colours to choose from, colour enhanced stones seem like the way to go
