7. Blue Pearl (Norway)
The Blue Pearl, Norway’s magnificent Larvik stone, is a distinct grayish-blue granite embedded with glimmering iridescent crystals.
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 color 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.
8. Emerald Pearl (Norway)
The Emerald Pearl is a pearlescent granite with silver and green flecks of mica quarried from Larvik, Norway.
Much like its counterpart, the Blue Pearl, its appearance varies depending on its quarry source. Also, it can either have a light green surface with silver crystals or a dark green shade with bluish specks.
This particular granite color resist tarnishes, making it a perfect choice for a kitchen countertop material. With proper care and maintenance, it will not stain or scratch easily.
Its rich, dark color works best with white painted walls and cabinets. Moreover, the striking contrast provides depth to any kitchen or bathroom space. Furthermore, the reflections from its metallic minerals add a little sparkle and shine to any room.
