Description

Black Forest granite is a dark grey to black gneiss with white decoration of the Precambrian period with lots of waves. This stone internationally may be nominated as a granite but in the area of application of the European Standard this stone must be nominated as a gneiss. During the polishing process a clear epoxy resin filler may be used to fill any micro fissures or tiny pitting however this does not affect the integrity of the stone, it merely provides an even smoother surface finish. Black Forest Granite is suitable for both interior and exterior use futhermore is frost resistant and with a constant polish.

Products

Suitable for construction projects both commercial and domestic, prefabricated countertops/worktops, vanities, tiles, backsplashes, paving, fireplaces and memorials.

Surface Finish

Black Forest Granite looks best with a gloss polished surface but is also available as honed, leather/satin, river-washed/antique, thermal/flamed, flamed & brushed, water-jet, bush-hammered, sandblast and sawn finish.

Sealing

Test with a small sample. It is possible that a sealant can be used on Black Forest Granite however excessive attempts at sealing it could actually create a residue film build-up.

Synonyms

Black Fantasy, Black Markino, Black Paradiso, Nero Foresta, Scorpio Black, Silver Paradiso

Quarry Location

Black Forest granite is quarried near Chittor, Andhra Pradesh, India. There are three different quarries of Black Forest granite, the veining and colour varies considerably and a small sample is not representative of the whole block or slabs. Lesser qualities have quartz bands.

Gneiss

A high grade metamorphic rock. Gneiss is medium to coarse-grained and may contain abundant quartz and feldspar, which some petrographers regard as essential components. The banding is usually due to the presence of differing proportions of minerals in the various bands; dark and light bands may alternate because of the separation of mafic (dark) and felsic (light) minerals. Banding can also be caused by differing grain sizes of the same minerals. The mineralogy of a particular gneiss is a result of the complex interaction of original rock composition, pressure and temperature of metamorphism, and the addition or loss of components.

Quarry Blocks

These are medium-sized granite quarries yielding selectable, grades of granite with blocks suitable for gangsaw size down to economical tile-sized and monument blocks. Extraction commenced in the early 2000s. For commercial projects it is important to ensure that blocks are selected from the same quarry face.
