BEAUTIFUL ENGINEERED QUARTZ THAT LOOKS & FEELS LIKE EXPENSIVE CALACUTTA MARBLE

dsc01891Infinity Countertops was hired by Michelle Ruber from Encircle Design to create the custom countertops she designed. Her design transformed this kitchen renovation with an elegant expensive Calacutta marble appearance using Polarstone Engineered Quartz for both the perimeter counters and full height backsplash. Michelle added a splash of a Coastal Gray Pental engineered quartz for the Island and Tabletop to pull together her elegant design.

The homeowner is enjoying maintenance free quartz countertops – plus – because of the diamond like hardness of engineered quartz, has durable counters with stain and scratch resistance attributes that is not possible with soft natural marble.

Creama Bordeaux Granite

Creme Bordeaux 3cm Lot 5693

Creama Bordeaux Granite is a natural stone and it’s stunning beauty will warm your heart even on the coldest of days. Thousands of cubic meters are quarried out of the Brazilian mountains, it is famous for its amazing colors and is often remarked to resemble the planet Jupiter with its swirling pink and cream patterns. Crema Bordeaux has an exceptionally high mineral content which produces a higher level of variation than most granites – which creates a complex dramatic flair with busy colors. The feeling of warmth comes from its amazing red / pink / burnt orange / burgundy tones. 

There is no standard predominant color for Crema Bordeaux – despite the name! The prominent creamy almost light brown tones – combined with pink and red areas range in color from soft and light pink to almost golden orange – to almost dark and rusty burgundy. Some slabs can be light – whereas other slabs can have such a high mineral content that they are almost completely covered in dark earthy rusty red or burgundy tones. Two slabs of Crema Bordeaux placed side by side, one with high amounts of the greyish blue mineral, one with low – and you would almost certainly say they were different types of granite. However – it makes this stone so great – the slab that you end up purchasing will be unique 

Due to this color variation – if you choose Crema Bordeaux for your project –it is important to inspect the actual slabs before delivery to your fabricator Infinity Countertops. We also recommend that you participate in the slab layout with Infinity Countertops technician after he templates your project for production dimensions. Creama Bordeaux granite is best used as a durable beautiful countertop. Infinity Countertops recommends pairing with understated monochromatic light or dark cabinets and floors. This stone is slightly less durable than average and while it is still super strong (it is granite after all), it will require a little bit more care during fabrication, as the veins may separate. These slabs are occasionally supported with a mesh fiberglass backing – however, after installation, the mesh will not be visible.

This client chose oak cabinets to pair with this block of Creama Bordeaux. The result is not overstated and has a beautiful warm and welcoming feel. You will find online that reviews of Crema Bordeaux granite are nearly always positive.

Fading Granite

A common question about black granites is “Why is the deep black in my granite seem to be fading?” The best way to prevent this is to go through a reputable supplier that only buys first-quality material, which means they will not be doctored in any way. It is important to view the slabs in person and not purchase based on price alone.

Some vendors buy the cheaper blacks with more “white graining,” and they dye them to hide the defects. Chinese Blacks are becoming very popular due to their low prices, but can be prone to “shakes and vents.” They may also have a grainy appearance, but are oiled or dyed to hide the defects, which will eventually fade, slowly revealing uneven color.

If you suspect it is dyed, you can perform two tests:
1) Take a clean white cloth with acetone on it, and wipe the stone to see if any residue comes off.
2) Take acetone and apply to a different section and wipe the stone with a white cloth – if there is any color transfer, the stone is dyed

Black Granites from India such as Absolute Black, Absolute Black Premium, and Absolute Black Super Premium, are all first-quality, dense black granites, not dyed or oiled. Black Galaxy has an extremely dense black background with bright gold specks which are due to the presence of Bronzite. This is very important to view in person so you can see the quality of the black to make sure it was not dyed.

South African Blacks, common name Zimbabwe Black, have a tight “rice-grain” effect, but are not as dense as Indian Blacks. Nero Impala is also from Africa, but should be categorized as Gray, not Black due to the coloring and grain structure.

Canadian Blacks such as Cambrian Black and Mesabi Black have a “rice-grain” effect with a silvery reflection. Atlantic Black has a slightly larger pattern also with a silvery reflection.
