A practically pure black stone has a timeless look, whether in a traditional or contemporary kitchen. Historically, the pure-black slot in our stock has been filled by Indian-sourced Nero Assoluto. This is an extremely dense stone which is particularly hard and less porous than many other stones sold as granites. 2017, however, saw us switch over for a period to Zimbabwe Black. Now, in 2019, we are back with the Nero Assoluto.
