Material Colour Blue Pearl granite is also known under many names depending on the actual type or class of colour variance. For this colour swatch we have nominated blue pearl extra "GT", the darkest, bluest back ground. This material is also known as Blue Pearl GT, Blue Pearl Tipo GT, Labrador GT, Labrador G.T. Blue Pearl "GT" Extra is the most expensive type of Labrador Blue Pearl.
"GT" is an abbreviation of "Granite Tvedalen". Blue Pearl Extra granite is quarried near Tuften, Tvedalen, Vestfold, Norway.
of Material
Labrador Blue Pearl GT Extra Dark granite is a very intensive coloured, coarse-grained, light blue iridescent syenite (larvikite) of the Permian period. This stone internationally may be nominated as a granite but this stone must be nominated as a syenite. Ideal for both interior and exterior use, Labrador Blue Pearl GT Extra granite is polish constant With Bright, flickering and intensive colours, blue pearl extra excels with under cabinet lighting making this stone stand out as one of the most beautiful type of kitchen worktops. Unique iridescence - flickering of dark and lighter blue mother of pearl, sparkle type quality seen in a few select granites.
NOTE : This material and the other 4 variants of Blue Pearl granite are all different in price so please choose your supplier wisely as some unscrupulous granite fabricators may charge you the top price for the cheapest materials!

Colour Change and Variation in slabs For large projects we ensure that the blocks are all extracted from the same quarry for matching purposes. Volga blue is another fairly even colour with a well distributed figure and pattern that can be unpredictable yet very beautiful in larger worktop sizes.Volga Blue granite is semi-porous and may be prone to absorb liquids therefore dry treat - stain proof should be applied before using as a work surface. Volga blue granite, although beautiful is also prone to breakage in longer worktops with sink or hob cut outs so extra jointing on a kitchen may apply(compared to other granites or other types of materials(quartz surfaces)).
Material Type, Important Information.....
Granite is a natural product. The actual granite available may slightly differ both in shade and pattern from the pictures shown on our website. We actively encourage customers to visit our showroom, factory and stock yard to choose your granite slabs before fabrication.This ensures you get the right product and information on your selection every time.
We recommend that you do not buy granite over the internet or from samples sent in the post. Huge variations can occur not only between different slabs but in the slab its self, from one end
to the other.
When spending so much money on something that you will have for years its certainly worth investing the time and effort to get it right, first time-
in short -
always view the slabs that your wortkops will be made from !
