Honed Black Granite

Honed black granite is a popular choice.  It is machined to a satin smooth finish and is very hard. However, large hearths should still be sectioned unless the stove runs very cool. It can withstand high levels of wear and tear and is suitable for open fires, stoves and gas/electric applications.
