Slab Sunday: Virginia Mist granite

Virginia Mist granite is quarried here in America.  The quarry is located near Culpeper, Virgina.

Virginia Mist looks a lot like Soapstone.  Over the years I've done quite a few jobs where the customer originally wanted Soapstone, but then ended up wanting less maintenance or Soapstone was out of their budget.  They ended up using Virginia Mist instead and I haven't heard a complaint from any of them!
When the Virginia Mist has a honed finish it especially looks like Soapstone.

Virginia Mist is also commonly called Jet Mist.  Other names also include: American Black, Virginia Black and Virgin Mist.

Virginia Mist is a really dense granite, so it does well in outdoor applications such as cladding, pavers, and outdoor kitchens.

Virginia Mist is a color that goes really well with the white marbles that are so popular (as you can see in the photo below).  It's a great look to use Virginia Mist on a kitchen perimeter and then Carrara or Calacatta marble on the island.
