Cactus granite finds its origins in China. Also known as Desert Green, Desert Oasis or Yanshan Green, this primarily dark green granite has speckles of black, taupe and beige throughout. Cactus granite is aptly named after this desert spiny succulent, utilizing cool tones that can be warmed up by adding colors that remind you of heat and sunshine, like a gorgeous desert sunset. Imagine how this unique stone could enhance your next home improvement project.
The look and feel of Cactus granite is unique to this beautiful natural stone, and is unparalleled by any other material. It is also one of the hardest and least porous stones, and is the best choice for places like kitchens as it does not react to acids and chemicals. The surface is polished to a reflective gloss, causing light to bounce off it, highlighting the pattern and colors. Along with a sealant, granite is easy to clean and maintain, and is a durable, long lasting material.

Cactus granite can be used in both interior and exterior installations and can withstand temperatures in freezing climates. The slabs are available in both 2 CM and 3 CM, and are recommended for counter tops in kitchens, bathrooms and outdoor living spaces, as well as back splashes and bar counter tops.
