I picked a granite for my counter-tops today. Quelle exciting! Pardon the picture quality – per usual, I’m using my cell phone. I don’t really know much about picking granite. You are supposed to talk about whether a piece has movement, and by movement, they mean giant veins of different colors. The more of those big veins you have, the more expensive your rock is. I like the way the little specks look, though, and when you don’t have a massive expanse of counter, some of that movement is wasted. My aunt’s house has huge island, I want to say it’s like 15 feet long and at least five feet wide – now that is a place to showcase a big slab of rock. My modest kitchen? Eh. I still think this stuff is pretty.
