This extremely hard and durable material has a tight crystalline structure offering stunning visual characteristics rarely found in more commonly available dark granites. Crushing blows from hand tools create a stark, pleasing contrast to the saturated color of the natural face. Often used as a split edge wall surface, the hand tooled finishes highlight lintels, sills, and copings. Honing the surface darkens it further and creates a stunning paver.


As with many of our materials, large-scale formats are available by special order enabling it to be scaled appropriately for larger structures.

Recommended Uses

Pavers, veneer, stair blocks, quoins, coping/caps, curbs, sills/lintels, drain grates, columns, sinks/tubs, slabs and cobblestones


Studio Black Granite may be installed in all standard setting techniques – mortar or thinset on slab or by sand setting.

As you'd expect in a natural product, stone does vary in colour and texture, even in the same quarry block. That's what makes stone so unique.
We recommend using the images on our website to initially chose the colour, texture and look you prefer, then talk to us to see our current samples. Mockups are also a great option before making your final decision. We strive to provide a product of the highest quality, but please remember it's stone, not paint. The colour and texture of the next layer in the quarry was defined millions of years ago.
