Blue Pearl, Norway’s great Larvik stone, is a distinct grayish-blue granite embedded with glimmering iridescent crystals.
Generally, it comes in different shades from metallic blue with silver streaks to dark blue with black and gray specks. These variations occur naturally, depending on a particular slab’s quarry. Thus, buyers are highly advised to inspect the actual pieces before purchasing the material(s) as they may differ from the samples and displays seen in showrooms.
The most notable characteristic of this particular granite is its iridescent optical effect (Schiller effect). Hence, the granite appears to change color when viewed from different angles, mainly when directed towards a light.
Blue Pearl, like every other granite, is unyielding. It will not scratch or chip under regular use. Also, heat from hot pots and pans won’t deal any damage either. It has a low absorption rate so you need not worry about staining.
Blue Pearl is a unique surface that offers a luminous and elegant look in any space. Given its durability, it is a one-time investment which undoubtedly gives a lifetime of service to any home.
