The only other name for Golden Crystal I've seen is Wuhan Beige.
Let me know if you've heard it called anything else.
I wouldn't think to pair it with orange walls, but I think this bathroom below is beautiful.
Golden Crystal varies A LOT from bundle to bundle.
I know I've said it a million times now, but be sure to pick out your exact slabs.
Usually when people use two different colors of granite in a kitchen they will do Absolute Black on the perimeter and then a granite with a lot of veining and movement on the island. I like that they did the opposite in the photo below.
The interesting thing about the gold and rust colors in granites like Golden Crystal is that it's caused by water that has penetrated into the stone through small cracks and fissures,
causing the iron oxide and other minerals to oxidize.
This takes millions of years.
Golden Crystal is on of my personal favorite granites in the gold/ rust family when it's the right slab. I think I like it because of all the white. My favorite slabs have lots of white. I debated and debated between this and Lapidus for my own kitchen and I have to say I regret choosing Lapidus. I like the Lapidus in my kitchen, but I like the Golden Crystal more. The Golden Crystal in the photo below is how I like it.
Golden Crystal is available in 2 cm and 3 cm slabs.
