Description: Labradorite Blue Australe granite is a dark grey/green anorthosite with blue iridescent areas.. This stone internationally may be nominated as a granite but in the area of application of the European Standard this stone must be nominated as an anorthosite.
The veining and colour varies considerably and a small sample of Labradorite Blue Australe granite may not be representative of the whole slab therefore swatch samples must be approved for large projects to ensure that the blocks are all extracted from the same quarry face for matching purposes. Ideal for both interior and exterior use, Labradorite Blue Australe granite is frost free and polish constant.
Anorthosite: A phaneritic, intrusive igneous rock characterized by a predominance of plagioclase feldspar (90-100%), and a minimal mafic component (0-10%). Pyroxene, ilmenite, magnetite, and olivine are the mafic minerals most commonly present.
