Colors

MEGA Swatch captures the rich tones of granite as well as the beautiful natural patterns!

MEGA Swatch granite colors represent the general color and pattern of specific granite, but exact color duplication cannot be guaranteed. Granite, being a natural product, will have variation in color and shading. This is a unique characteristic of natural stone and is to be expected. Granite pattern variations will also vary to some extent. Similar patterns can be found throughout the industry but due to the unique nature of the product, no two pieces will be exactly alike.

The great appeal of granite for kitchen counter tops comes from its many variations in patterns, shades, and colors. The industry has standardized the colors and patterns of stones with names that make it easy for us to refer to when ordering or comparing.

Absolute Black
Absolute black has a high glossy sheen. The color tone does not change over the entire stone. It is highly polished to mirror like brightness and possesses a beautiful stark quality that makes it stand out. Absolute black granite is one of the biggest selling types of decorative granite. It is mined primarily from Australia, South Africa, India and Sweden.

Azule
There are actually many different types of azule granite. The name can vary depending on which country the granite comes from. Azule is the second most popular color in the world being used for decorative purposes.
