Slab Sunday: Magma Gold granite

Magma Gold is an exotic granite in quarried in Brazil.

It is a more expensive granite because of the extensive manual labor that it requires to produce the slabs.

Magma Gold was originally introduced to the US market in 2007 as 'Sedna'.  It was quickly changed to Magma Gold by a leading Italian factory that bought part of the quarry’s production and started cutting and polishing the stone in Italy.
Other names for Magma Gold include Volcano, Sedna Gold, Magma, Juparana Magma Gold and Lava Gold.

This is one of those slabs that I would recommend that you HAVE to pick out your exact slabs, it's not even an option to select off of a small sample.  Magma Gold can change dramatically in pattern and even color from bundle to bundle.

 Magma Gold is available in 2 cm and 3 cm slabs.

Is the granite in the photo by Yelisey Khrestsov Stone Center honed? It looks beautiful.

It's actually a leathered finish on that piece. It's gorgeous isn't it?

If it's crazy I'm crazy too. I just love stone, it's a work of art!
