Astoria granite countertops
Astoria Granite is a stone quarried throughout India. It is also commonly called ivory chiffon, Kashmir crème granite, millennium cream granite and ivory cream granite.
Astoria granite is predominantly a creamy gold color which captures the eye from afar. This gold can range all the way from a slightly off white color – to a color that resembles wet sand.
It contains dark minerals that make up about 5% of the stones overall mass. This results in the creamy gold being mixed with darker brown spots and occasionally brown veins.
The creamy gold color upon closer inspection is actually infused with a light white color that comes from the quartz crystals that are present in the stone. This gives the appearance of a slight twinkle from afar which is a hallmark of this truly stunning stone.
