An interesting fact about Rainforest Brown granite is – that it’s not granite. Rainforest granite is actually a type of stone called “serpentinite”. This rock is composed of one or more serpentine group minerals. People usually call it serpentine. However, serpentine is actually a set of minerals that together create serpentinite. The name ‘serpentinite” this rock got because of its resemblance to the look of snake skin.

This variety of Rainforest Brown granite is somewhere between granite and marble. However, Rainforest granite – serpentinite will act as any other granite countertop in your kitchen. It’s tough, hard, dense and acid resistant. Brown rainforest granite ranks 7 or 8 on the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness. This means that a kitchen countertop made from this gorgeous stone will serve you well in years to come.

The look of Rainforest Brown Granite

The primary colors in this beautiful granite are brown and gray. The refinement and exquisiteness of Rainforest Brown come from the powerful, startling burgundy and gray and tan veins. These patterns and shades streak over a charcoal gray top. A highly dramatic look of this stone is soothed by pleasant and calming varying shades of gray and brown. The rainforest granite slab looks like it’s been taken directly from the nature and put in your home.

Rainforest Brown Granite maintenance

For some, the beauty of the kitchen countertops will be the most important factor when choosing the right type for a kitchen. For others, nothing will beat the durability and ease of maintenance.
