Yak Black Granite
Return to granite samples page.
Location: Yak Black granite is quarried in India.
Description: Yak Black granite is a fine-grained, black granite with white-grey inclusions. This stone internationally may be nominated as a granite but in the area of application of the European Standard we are awaiting clarification.
A small sample of Yak Black granite is usually representative not having a wide variation in colour and veining however 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, Yak Black 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.
