Polished Granite HearthBlack granite

A very hard and uniform material. Available as highly polished or honed, the latter a silk finish which is not quite as black. Rarely treated in the industry but a good idea as it is porous and some products will leave a stain that is hard to remove.

Although hard it is not overly strong so will still required slabbing for open fires and high output stoves .
