Azul Platino granite is a material which has attracted a lot of attention over the last few years. For our first few installations of Azul Platino granite worktops we handled it on a bespoke basis, but found the stone so popular and cost-effective for our customers that we ended up holding it in stock. Inexpensive compared to the Premium granites, it offers a lot of pizzazz for your money. A subtle natural glitter sets it apart from other grey speckled stones. We love it!
The texture is bigger-grained and more random than Salt and Pepper granite. There is also a little more colour-less monochrome grey, white and black and more specks of subtle cream to green to blue when you look closely – although the overall impression is still a uniform grey.
As a truly igneous stone, Azul Platino granite is a relatively light coloured material which is not as porous as, say River White. This can be a significant advantage when it comes to the need for regular resealing.
Azul Platino and Salt and Pepper granite are by no means alone in the grey-speckled end of natural stone. We have also occasionally fitted Bianco Sardo and other stones, but for consistency of speckle size and that eye-catching sparkle, we have found nothing to beat Azul Platino.
Please note that Azul Platino granite is not always available in the largest slab sizes. We have had slabs at over 3 metres long, but at times have also found the material limited to 2750mm or less. Please bear this in mind when planning work in this material.
Azul Platino sells in our Superior price band.
