Description: African Red Granite, as the name suggests is a brick red coloured natural stone that has an appearance of a thick red forest canopy, observed from above. It displays a red background, mixed with mineral deposits of various colours, the prominent ones being black and white. Some portions also show pockets of translucent quartz distributed randomly. Black dots when accumulated together appear as waves and veins on top of the red background. The overall physical appearance of this red granite slab with dotted patches of red, sometimes makes it appear like a ladybird’s back.

 Colours and images may not be exact. Because granite is a natural stone, there's no way you will find a stone slab that looks precisely like this photo.  Therefore when choosing granite for your kitchen worktops or any project, make sure to choose your specific slabs in person, rather than depending on granite sample units or images displayed.

Suitable Applications:

Red is a vibrant colour, so it draws the attention of spectators when utilised for facades as the facing stone. It is easy to see that  Red granites are quite popularly used throughout Europe in commercial buildings including exterior wall cladding, wall panel cladding, pillars, and landscape curbing.

This lovely Red Granite stone is also used for kitchen worktops, bathroom vanities, reception desks, and kitchen breakfast bars, kitchen islands, tabletops, interior wall cladding, staircase, pavings, pool copings, architectural works, monuments, and various other design projects. 

 Red granite worktops look fantastic with black granite floor tiles, black granite kitchen sinks, and other black granite accents. Or in the opposite case, if you use a black granite kitchen worktop or black leather granite for flooring, pair it with African Red Granite as kitchen cabinet tops, worktop backsplashes and splashbacks for the sink to give your kitchen or any renovated space,  an aesthetically powerful look.

Transport charge will be discussed separately.

Composition of Granite

Granite is a coarse-grained, light-coloured igneous rock composed of feldspars and quartz with minor quantities of mica and amphibole minerals. Taking a closer look at the mineral composition is focused on understanding the pattern and colour of the slabs. Feldspar is abundantly found in granite, they constitute pink, grey, or reddish pigments. Quartz is a colourless, transparent mineral. Mica has muscovite and biotite of the mica mineral family sheds a reflective vitreous luster. Amphibole mineral-like hornblende is dark in colour and has a prismatic appearance. Special names are given according to their grain sizes. The large-grained crystals are called pegmatite, and the fine-grained from crystallizing is termed Aplite.

Maintenance for your Granite worktop

Avoid using string and harmful chemicals, acid-based cleaners, or corrosive scrubs. Using Mild Soap liquid or pH neutral cleaning liquid and a microfiber cloth can get your kitchen or any granite surface to keep looking attractive, & last longer.

The sealant added to the granite gives the more reliable performance of keeping the spillage during cooking from being absorbed into the grains. An immediate wiping is recommended to prolong the life of the granite worktop. Discoloration and marks are a threat to the granite if the chopping board is not in place. Carelessness can make the sturdy stone chipping or stain resistant which could deteriorate a beautiful centerpiece of a Kitchen.
