Orange, brown, and gray-flecked granite
Irregular pattern and color balance
Ideal for most home applications
Durable stone with incredible stain and heat resistance
Polished finish for a brilliant shine
Juparana Mel granite is characterized by its warm orange, brown, and gray-flecked surface. A wonderful melting pot of colors, it's the perfect stone for a home needing a warm, textured design feature. Each tile is totally different from the next in terms of pattern and color balance. Some are markedly orange, with strong speckles of brown, others are largely gray, creating a softer, understated look.
Granite is a volcanic stone created by the rapid cooling of molten rock as it nears the earth's surface. It is characteristically hard, a result of its quick solidification, making it incredibly scratch resistant. This makes it suitable for countertops, vanities, bathroom sinks, and other work surfaces around the home.
Furthermore, its explosive origins make it suitably heat resistant, a hot mug, or straightening iron is unlikely to mar the surface of this beautiful stone. Therefore, it's ideal for a busy family environment that requires a sturdy natural material. Once it has been sealed with a stone protectant, it is capable of resisting stains and moisture damage, making it one of the most durable stones the market has to offer.
This tile has a bright polished finish, created by grinding the stone down to a beautifully smooth level, then polishing the stone until a brilliant shine is revealed. This is a process which can remove up to 1mm of the stone's surface in order to achieve the desired effect.
The stone's natural colors are revealed to their full potential. Blacks appear deeper and darker than ever before, while the pale gray tones are lifted to create a brighter stone with an exciting contrast. But the benefits don't stop there. A polished finish reflects the light around the room creating a bright and spacious area, just like a mirror. The glossy sheen creates a high-end look for your home interior, its illustrious surface adding texture and glow.
Juparana Mel creates a splash of color while still retaining a delicate design. Pair it with cream or white kitchen units and art deco style lighting to create a touch of glamour within the home. Despite its orange and brown color tone, the stone's color palette is subtle enough that it can work with a multitude of designs. Go for a pastel blue wall to contrast the warm oranges, creating a beautiful modern interior that feels calm and tranquil.
When used in a bathroom, Juparana Mel creates a stunning bathtub backsplash or shower wall. Use a bright white suite, his and hers sinks, and a luxurious towel selection for the bathroom of your dreams.
Juparana Mel's color palette is subtle enough to be used throughout the home. It matches with most furniture, be it wooden, painted, or modern, and therefore makes a great stone to pull the design of your hallways, kitchen, and reception rooms together.
