Granite comes in a variety of colours, depending on where it originates from throughout the world. Granite exists in a range of colours and derives from several nations and continents throughout the world, including Africa, India, and China. Your granite will have a different geological makeup depending on the quarry from where it was extracted. This differentiates each of the various granite worktop colours and shades, allowing you to select the designs that best suit your needs.

We only carry the highest quality slabs in the most popular granite colours at Shaw Stone Ltd. Customers should be cautious that some less ethical businesses may sell lower-grade granites that have been coloured or even soaked in diesel to make them appear darker. The dye or fuel will fade with time, producing a patchy grey surface, which is a less common granite worktop colour. Fortunately, when you pick Shaw Stone, your worktops and granite colours are 100% natural and can last the test of time in even the most demanding settings.
