Not all granite is equal. While granite has generally become more affordable, allowing a wider range of homeowners to achieve beautiful granite countertops, there is still a large gap between granite varieties that are more available and those that are rare and hard to find. As it was quoted in a recent Channel 5 News article, "Granite is like diamonds." In most cases, it is high variation and dramatic movement and flow that makes particular granite slabs more rare and expensive rather than the color. The individual patterns of granite are what make them so uniquely exquisite. However, there is one hue that happens to be very hard to find in granite, and therefore, always comes with a bigger price tag. As the article quotes a Texas-based installer, "If someone is looking for granite that is really rare . . . choosing a a blue hue is the way to go." For those homeowners looking to make a stunning statement with their countertops, here are some of the rare blue granite slabs currently available here at Marble and Granite in Westwood, Massachusetts and Milford, Connecticut.
