Where does Blue Pearl Granite come from?

Blue pearl granite is quarried in Norway, where it is carefully extracted from deep within the earth’s surface. Its formation over millions of years results in a stone of distinct quality and character. While it is primarily used for monuments due to its premium status, Blue Pearl Granite is occasionally incorporated into high-end building cladding for a luxurious finish.

The intricate grain structure of blue pearl granite, along with its spectrum of shades, adds even more depth and character to its appearance. It’s why it’s such a sought-after choice for memorial, monument makers and urban designers and architects.

What is Blue Pearl Granite primarily used for?

Is Blue Pearl an expensive granite?

Yes, Blue Pearl granite is considered a premium stone due to its rarity and unique colour variations, making it more expensive compared to other granite options. It’s also more expensive to cut than red and black granite. Why? Because it’s harder and therefore cutting through it wears through equipment faster.
