Black Galaxy Granite Countertops The Original and still continuing to be the best!
We have been producing granite countertops since the early 1990s and have produced in excess of 1,500,000+ linear metres (4,800,000 linear feet)...that's a lot of kitchens! We were the first Indian company to achieve successful quantity granite countertop production and perceptive wholesale purchasers and project specifiers worldwide appreciate our commitment to the highest quality production.
You can view our Black Galaxy granite quarry here.
It is important to note that we maximise the production from every block by shipping free length worktop strips with a minimum length of 2400mm (94.5") up to usually a maximum of 3200mm (126"). If your requirement is for fixed-length strips the cost will be higher since we shall inevitably have more waste than usual.

Standard granite countertop sizes available are 2400mm (94.5") up to usually a maximum of 3200mm (126":
600~700 mm granite countertop strips are packed ten to a crate.
2400+ x 600 x 30 mm (94.5"+ x 23.6" x 1.18") Polished top surface & all four edges with pencil bevel/eased edge.
Standard granite backsplash size available is:
2400+ x 110 x 20 mm (94.5"+ x 4" x 0.75") Polished top surface, one long edge & two ends with pencil bevel.
Very occasionally extra long slabs are available, the largest we have ever shipped were 4500 mm (177.2"/14.75ft) in length!
Both ourselves and many countertop fabricators worldwide use what are known as "cutter" slabs. These slabs are produced from smaller quarry blocks from the same quarry, the material is the same, however the block cost is lower therefore standard width countertops of 600~900 mm can be produced for a lower cost.
Several years ago we wrote an article bespoke v prefabricated granite countertops explaining how we revolutionised global countertop production ... well, someone had to be the first and it was us!
As with the traditional larger "gangsaw" size slabs, the same granite quality standards apply and which we describe below.
Black Galaxy Granite Quality Standards
Grading standards for Black Galaxy Granite is generally accepted to be as follows:
Q1. Black Galaxy Premium/First Choice : Granite clean of any visible veining.
It is important to note that there is a limited quantity of Premium Galaxy granite available, the vast majority of countertops/slabs shipped by ALL processors is of the Classic Galaxy granite. Classic is lower in cost than Premium.
These lines do not affect the integrity of the material and quite often cannot even be seen except from a specific viewing angle or under very bright lights, certainly, insofar as a large area of flooring for a shopping mall is concerned, our Black Galaxy Classic Granite is acceptable and appreciated.
The image to the right shows the QC (Quality Control) Inspector measuring large Premium Black Galaxy granite random slabs prior to crating and shipment to the customer..
Black Galaxy slabs are available in many different dimensioned sizes and a massive cost saving can be made by shipping smaller sizes already prefabricated for project supplies or in much more manageable cutter strips which can then be processed on-site with much smaller trimming saws.
All our granite countertop and slab production can be independently inspected with their report emailed direct to the buyer prior to shipment approval.
As yet we have still not discovered anything better than traditional wooden crates for shipping in a container. Each crate is custom-made since free-length worktop strips dictate this method. The crates are suitable for outside storage until needed. All containers are fumigated after loading therefore you should not receive any unwanted surprises.
