Welcome to a new feature, here on the MGLW blog, where we bring attention to just a few of the most impressive or unique stone materials we have had arrive at the warehouse recently.
Be it marble, granite, limestone or quartzite we aim to introduce you to new materials, which you otherwise may not have heard of, give a small description and let you know how you can go about finding out more about them.
The first material we are shining the spotlight on this week is this unique granite named Copacobana. Like a love letter to the Art Nouveau movement of the late 19th century, the very organic waves of white and black that wash over the surface of this material are truly spectacular. As one of the most striking materials we have had, you must come down to our warehouse and see it in person.
Copacobana is a Brazilian material and, at the time of writing, MGLW have slabs available in 20mm thickness. You can see an up to date account of our stock online here.
Next up is another granite, the impressive Titanium. Swirls of gold and grey make their way across the face of this granite. The way in which they almost mix into one is reminiscent of paint on a palette. This stone would look at home in any setting.
Titanium is also a Brazil stone and at the time of writing MGLW have several slabs available in 30mm thickness. You can see an up to date account of our stock, along with images, online here.
The third and final stone, in this edition of Stone Focus, is the wonderful Rafaello. This is a beautiful, white quartzite that would be a great option for a classic stone design in the kitchen or bathroom. It maintains an almost statuary marble type look and feel, with all the benefits of being a tougher quartzite.
Yet another Brazilian stone, at the time of writing MGLW have slabs available in both 20mm and 30mm thickness. You can see an up to date account of our stock, along with images, online here.
