Newbie here. Need answer about granite

I have been lurking for awhile and gaining very useful information. I am choosing a granite counter with a 6 inch backsplash. I like Emerald Pearl. Googling it tells me it is from Norway but the prefrabrication slab is from China.
Does this mean that the granite is from Norway but in China , the stone was cut and finished?
I have also read that black granite from China is not good. Did anyone hear anything bad about Emerald Pearl granite prefrabricated from China?

A lot of the granite today is shipped to China where it is cut and polished. I don't know what your price is, but I can tell you that I recently checked into outsourcing our cutting and polishing to a Chinese company. (My stonemason is considering a change of career) We sell installed 3cm Uba-tuba for $55-60 sf. I can buy the same thing for about 30-40 bucks sf through these guys. So it's a whole lot cheaper. I don't have a price for emerald pearl offhand. I haven't heard anything bad about the import granite, other than the business it's taking away from me. The quality of fit relies heavily on the person making the template.
