An Introduction to Angola Black Leathered Granite

Angola Black Leathered Granite is a black granite with a textured leather finish.

Picking out what kind of Granite Slab you want to choose for your project can be a fickle thing. It is important to understand the differences between Granite Slabs. Some granite is better for the kitchen whereas other kinds may be better for your bathroom. Here at Discount Granite and Home Supply, we have several granite options to choose from. We are happy to present to you our Angola Black Leathered Granite from our Tier 3 Granite Slab Price group.

What are Advantages of Angola Black Leathered Granite?

  • The leathering process accentuates some of the highlighting colors that are throughout the slab.
  • Requires the same care and maintenance as smooth, polished granite.
  • The leathering process tightens up the millions of pores that pepper the surface of any granite. This makes it even more resistant to staining. Also, because of the more muted surface, fingerprints and water spots are not as visible. 

Where does Angola Black Leathered Granite Slab Come From?

Discount Granite and Home Supply Granite Slabs are Sourced from some of the most Prestigious Companies in the World. Angola Black Leathered Granite comes from the quarries of Brazil. Our Associates worked hard to find the best quality material and we are proud to have been supplying Columbus, Ohio with Granite Slabs from all around the World since 2008.

Angola Black Leathered Granite is not naturally occurring. The leathering process is a lengthy and difficult procedure. To achieve this unique look, the surface of a typical piece of granite is run over with diamond tipped brushes multiple times. This strips away any imperfections but keeps the natural grooves and contours.
