Bianco Typhoon Granite is quarried from a bedrock in the north of India. This granite is coming from a deposit that is 35 miles long. The grain structure and size of the crystals will change on every shipment. The background color is a creamy white tone. This color will have biotite and quartz running through the slab to give it depth. The mica in this granite has a three dimensional look, making it glitter in the light. During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the stone to fill in any natural pits, cracks or fissures that may exist. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone. It is possible for some of the more minute pits that are too small to effectively hold the resin, to reopen during other finishing stages. However, this will not detract from the overall quality or appearance of the stone. Due to the qualities of the stone, the slabs are book-matched; meaning slab one and slab two will be cut and polished to create a mirror image of each other. These are then kept in sequence, which allows for a consistent flow in pattern. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
