Description: Giallo Amazon Granite is fine-grained with a pale cream to yellow to light pink background, with clear quartz and dark ruby brown to black garnets and can have selectable heavy veining if required. 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. Ideal for both interior and exterior use, Giallo Amazon granite is frost free and polish constant.
Products: Suitable for construction projects both commercial and domestic, prefabricated countertops/worktops, vanities, tiles, backsplashes, paving, fireplaces and memorials.
Surface Finish: Giallo Amazon 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. We never use colour enhancers.
Sealing: Test with a small sample. It is probable that a sealant can be used on Giallo Amazon however excessive attempts at sealing it could actually create a residue film build-up.
Block Sizes: This is an exclusive, medium-sized granite quarry yielding selectable, grades of granite with blocks suitable for gangsaw size down to economical tile-sized and monument blocks. Extraction commenced in the very early 2010s. For commercial projects it is important to ensure that blocks are selected from the same quarry face. Please note that alternative Indian granite with a similar name are from a boulder quarry, not from from our own sheet bedrock quarry.
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: Giallo Amazon granite is from our own sheet bedrock quarry near Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India.
Synonyms: Forest Yellow
Granite: Granite is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock. Granites are usually medium to coarse grained, occasionally with some individual crystals larger than the groundmass forming a rock known as porphyry. Granites can be pink to dark grey or even black, depending on their chemistry and mineralogy.Granite is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock.
