Unusual stones including Black Galaxy Granite

When many people picture a stone kitchen worktop or a marble floor, they imagine the classic white marble or dark grey granite. However, these are not the only options available. Both natural and processed stones now come in a dazzling array of colours and textures, from pillar box red Silestone to black galaxy granite.

At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’ve explored the many options available from UK and international quarries to select the best stones around. We’re proud to have an option for every taste and purpose, whether you’re looking for a classic marble bathroom, a minimalist granite kitchen worktop or a trendy and bright new look for the office.

Dalmatian Spots

Stark black and bright white lie side by side in this dramatic engineered stone. Carbone by Caesarstone uses two colours of quartz to create a high-contrast design. It’s a bold and very modern look, best suited to chic minimalist designs. A hygienic and food-safe stone, Caesarstone is ideal for use in the kitchen or bathroom.

Pebbles

All the natural shades of a pebble beach appear in Bruno Sasso stone. An engineered stone created by Arenastone, Bruno Sasso is made up of chips of quartz. The varied shades blend to create a pleasing shade when viewed from a distance, but up close separate into an endless variety of colours and shapes. The stone can be finished with a smooth polish or a rough one, and is an ideal choice for creating a natural theme in a bathroom or adding to a country-style kitchen.

Black Galaxy Granite

A natural stone that seems like a reflection of a starry sky. The naturally formed white specks form a dense, Milky Way effect against the black granite. Polished to a high gloss, the stone seems to sparkle. It’s a great choice for adding a touch of drama to an otherwise plain surface, such as a kitchen worktop or floor.

Pillar Box Red Silestone

Bold, striking colours are a popular trend, and the manufacturers of Silestone have really pushed the boat out. Made of 94% natural quartz, one of the hardest natural materials on Earth, Rosso Monza is incredibly durable. That final 6% includes the vivid dyes that give the stone its deep colours. The bright hues are ideal for a statement kitchen or to create a patterned effect with stone tiles. A highly polished finish gives the colour a deep gloss, while a rougher finish creates a more matte effect.

Kunlun Ink

If black galaxy granite is like the Milky Way, then Kunlun Ink is the scattered stars of deep space. This processed Samsung Radianz Quartz stone is very black indeed, with a few brilliant white chips scattered through the material. The chips reflect the light very well, while the black stone soaks it up, giving a very effective contrast. When it catches the sunlight, this stone really shines. It’s most effective with a highly polished finish.

A kitchen worktop is a hard working piece: it’s not only the place where most food preparation is done, but it’s often the key visual element in a kitchen design. As the worktop is so important, it’s well worth choosing a high quality piece which will be both beautiful and practical – and one which will still look good in five, ten or even twenty years. Stone worktops come in a wide range of natural colours, from classic marble white through to rich reds and yellows. Modern treatments and finishes […]
