Description: English Teak Granite is a consistent, medium-grained, red-brown migmatite of the Precambrian period. This stone internationally may be nominated as a granite but in the area of application of the European Standard this stone must be nominated as a migmatite. The veining and colour varies and a small sample of English Teak granite may not be representative of the whole slab therefore swatch samples must be approved for large projects to ensure that the blocks are all extracted from the same quarry face for matching purposes. During the polishing process a clear epoxy resin filler may be used to fill any micro fissures or tiny pitting however this does not affect the integrity of the stone, it merely provides an even smoother surface finish. English Teak Granite is suitable for both interior and exterior use futhermore is frost resistant and with a constant polish.
Products: Suitable for construction projects both commercial and domestic, prefabricated countertops/worktops, vanities, tiles, backsplashes, paving, fireplaces and memorials.

Surface Finish: English Teak granite looks best with a gloss polished surface but is also available as honed, leather/satin, river-washed/antique, thermal/flamed, brushed and sandblast finish. We never use colour enhancers.
Sealing: Test with a small sample. It is probable that a sealant can be used on English Teak granite however excessive attempts at sealing it could actually create a residue film build-up.
Block Sizes: This is an exclusive, smalll granite quarry yielding selectable, grades of granite with blocks suitable for gangsaw size down to economical tile-sized and monument blocks. Extraction commenced in the late 1970s. For commercial projects it is important to ensure that blocks are selected from the same quarry face.
Rough blocks are usually exported by Break Bulk however intermodal containerisation is available at extra cost. Finished products are packed into sea-worthy wooden crates and loaded into containers.
Quarry Location: English Teak granite is from our own sheet bedrock quarry near Pakala, Chittoor, Nellore, Andhra Pradesh, India
Migmatite: Migmatite is a rock at the frontier between igneous and metamorphic rocks. They can also be known as diatextite. Migmatites form under extreme temperature conditions during prograde metamorphism, where partial melting occurs in pre-existing rocks.
