Bengal Black granite

Bengal Black

Bengal black is beautiful black granite with grey/white/green tiny dots. There is no connection between  the state of Bengal and this granite. It is quarried in the border areas of the state of Tamilnadu and Andrapradesh.

Feature of this granite : This is a Hard granite ,capable of taking high degree of Polishing. Unlike most of other Indian black granites, this material cannot be doped. That is the colour of this material cannot be darkened using epoxy resin or or pigments.

Usage : The dope resisting quality of this granite makes it most suitable for tombstone application.
since the South African impala availability became very scare, many tombstone fabricators in Europe ,Korea and Japan started using this as a more consistent material for tombstone for extreme cold conditions.  This is also used for making counter tops. In continental Europe there is good demand for brushed finish of this material.

Availability : There are 30 + quarries operating in South India claims they produce this material. However there is lot of variation among most of them .

Dark Bengal Black :Some has got really darkground without having any white foreground. Currently such material is rarely found in any quarry

Bengal Black : is the material with fair distribution of green/white dots set in a dark black background.

New Bengal black : Here the distribution of the white/green/grey spots are more than the previous two.

Pricing : Currently prices of Bengal black blocks  are ruling high . the reasons are
a) Increased demand for Rough Blocks for export from Taiwan, Thailand, Italy & Vietnam
b) Most of the quarries are two small producing between 30-100 CBM/month. rendering the production high expensive
c)Increased diesel price by the Government
