Description: G611 Granite is a medium-grained, light violet syenite/monzonite. This stone internationally may be nominated as a granite and in the area of application of the European Standard this stone must be nominated as a syenite/monzonite. 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. G611 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: G611 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.
Sealing: Test with a small sample. It is possible that a sealant can be used on G611 granite however excessive attempts at sealing it could actually create a residue film build-up.
Block Sizes: This is a quarry yielding selectable, grades of granite with blocks suitable for gangsaw size down to economical tile-sized blocks. 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: G611 Granite is quarried near Kangmei, Fujian province, China. There are several different quarries all producing slightly different shades and graining.
Synonyms: A 011, Almond Mauve, China Lilac, G3511 (according to GB/T 17670), G611, Hubei, Hubei Pink, Kangmei, Kangmei Hei, Kork Stone, Melange, NDG 056 Purple Peach, WG011
Monzonite: A plutonic igneous rock intermediate in composition between syenite and diorite. An intrusive igneous rock that contains abundant and approximately equal amounts of plagioclase and potash feldspar, it also contains subordinate amounts of biotite and hornblende and sometimes minor quantities of orthopyroxene. Quartz, nepheline, and olivine, which are occasionally present, produce quartz, nepheline, and olivene monzonites. Monzonite is not a rare rock type, but it generally occurs in rather small, heterogeneous masses associated with (and perhaps gradational to) diorites, pyroxenites, or gabbros.
