Amazonite

Amazonite, a highly sophisticated green granite often categorized as quartzite, originates from Brazil, showcasing a distinctive palette ranging from green to blue and grey. Renowned for its rarity, one of its standout characteristics is its exceptionally dense and compact surface, rendering it perfect for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, flooring, and wall applications. Available in stock, Amazonite granite (or quartzite) slabs come in a standard thickness of 20mm. To accentuate its inherent beauty, a polished finish is recommended.

The term “Amazonite granite” or “Amazonite quartzite” often refers to a stone that includes Amazonite mineral as a component, though it can sometimes be a misnomer. The stone’s distinctive green color is due to trace elements such as lead and water. Amazonite granite is suitable for use in countertops, tiles, and various architectural applications. However, it is important to note that periodic sealing is recommended to protect the stone from staining and etching.

Amazonite is generally positioned in the higher price range for natural stone countertops. In the U.S., prices typically range from $200 to $350 per square foot. For slabs sourced from Italian factories, the cost ranges from €750 to €1900 per square meter, exclusive of fabrication and installation costs.
