Barricato granite is a natural stone original from Brazil. It has a distinctive multicolour pattern in warm and earthy colours ranging from gold, brown, ochre, white and beige which provides the unique appeal of this beautiful material.
Barricato granite comes in standard thicknesses of 20mm and 30mm. Thicker blocks can be sourced from its quarry as a special order.
Available finishes are polished as standard. Honed, Flamed, Satinato, Bush Hammered and Sawn finishes are also available.
