Silver Wave granite is another fusion of several monochromatic tones, displaying curly veins in black, greys and whites scattered all round the surfaces; resulting in a magnificent display of natural minerals that will dazzle any area in which it is applied.
Silver Wave granite is a tough material that is highly resistant to scratches, accidental impacts and stains. This makes it suitable for applications such as vanity tops, kitchen worktops and floorings as it requires minimal maintenance. Silver Wave granite is a variation of the Wave family of granites which includes similar materials such as Sea Wave Cosmic, Orissa Blue granites, Black Wave and Blue Wave granite. Silver Wave granite is one of the most popular types from this family of stones as it provides a subtle yet striking base colour.
Granite is a magmatic rock which is made out of quartz and feldspar amongst other minerals. It occurs naturally below the earth’s surface over hundreds of thousands of years resulting in an extremely strong stone that has been used over many civilizations in construction of buildings and monuments and paving. Most recently, granite has become the material of choice for residential homes as it offers unique and exotic looks, durability, strength and investment value to any property in which it is applied. The lack of calcium in granite ensures the stone does not etch like marble when exposed to acid present in lemons, oranges, etc
Standard thicknesses for Sea Wave granite are 20mm and 30mm and it comes in standard finishes in polished, honed and special order satin and bush hammered which allow for many options in terms of both design and style.
