Slab Sunday: Verde Butterfly granite

Verde Butterfly is a dark green granite quarried in Brazil.

Overall Verde Butterfly has dark green medium to large crystals that resemble butterfly wings. There are some white quartz and sapphire flecks.  Some slabs have more than others.  Sometimes the slabs will have gold veining or spots, but that's pretty rare.  Even though this is a fairly consistent stone I still highly recommend selecting your exact slabs because the coloring does change from bundle to bundle.
