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. Please click on the image to enlargen.
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.
