I just had some countertops installed today. Tonight when we flipped the overhead lighting on, we noticed what appears to be a fissure in our new countertops. I know natural stone often has fissures, veins, etc. but I was wondering if this was the case for absolute black as well. We only notice it in this one spot.
When you run your finger over it, it is totally smooth and even. Here is the best pic I could take. Is this abnormal?
Yes, that's very true...and especially when alking about a 'black' stone and even more specifically a "granite".
Or is it a granite? Volumes have been written about 'black granite' since there are so many that come from the four corners of the globe, some even are real 'black granites', a lot of it fake and doctored to get more money from you...
It comes down to trusting the guy you bought it from. Even then, he might not know if it is real or fake and just bought it form an importer who bought 'black granite' from some distributor somewhere...in other words he didn't have a clue what he bought. So you don't. Nor do we.
Your main contact for this is the guy you bought it from...see some other slabs he has, at different price points. I'm afraid all we can say is buyer beware because natural stones are variable, not man-made. Good luck!
