It is a lot denser than most other natural stones. Hence it is less likely to absorb any form of liquid. Even sealer won’t penetrate its surface. Moreover, it resists heat and scratches, making it an ideal countertop material.

And, like all other granites, it has an inherent strength which can bear the constant use and abuse of kitchen preparations. Ultimately, it is strength and beauty combined.
