Location: Padang Gold granite is quarried near Shijing, Fujian province, China. There are many different quarries of Padang Gold/G682 all producing different colour shades and graining from pale yellow to a darker yellow or with a touch of pink.
Description: Padang Gold granite is a medium-grained, yellow to pink granite. This stone internationally may be nominated as a granite and in the area of application of the European Standard this stone must be nominated as a granite.
The veining and colour varies considerably and a small sample of Padang Gold 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, Padang Gold granite is frost free and polish constant.

Granite: Granite is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock. Granites are usually medium to coarse grained, occasionally with some individual crystals larger than the groundmass forming a rock known as porphyry. Granites can be pink to dark grey or even black, depending on their chemistry and mineralogy.
