African Blue Granite

Blue Granite

African Blue Granite is also known as Namibia Blue. This is one of the most expensive stones on the market. An exotic and beautiful natural stone which varies greatly in color tone and texture.

The background is blue, sometimes light blue and at other times aqua marine. Some slabs showcase yellow veining throughout with highlights of white and caramel colored browns.

This is a more fragile stone with a tendency to break so it's often strengthened with a glass fiber armed resin. Contact with acids can cause irreparable damage.
