What is Fusion Granite?
Fusion granite is an incredibly complex granite that combines a variety of blues, whites, greys and browns to create a truly marvelous stone. It is quarried in Brazil and is occasionally called blue fire granite.
As the name suggests this stone is a real “fusion” of color. There are three main colors that will make up the bulk of this stone. However no two slabs will ever be alike.
In fact fusion granite is said to have the highest level of variation within any type of granite. Below we will describe the three main colors that are present in nearly every stone.
One of the great things about this stone is that no matter what color your cabinets – fusion granite will be able to blend in (within reason!)
The first main color is a stunning grey. This can range in color from very light grey, through to a medium grey. The greys will often turn a stunning deep navy blue in certain places which creates a huge level of interest in just this one color of the stone. The grey will not usually be uniform in color, and many different bands or waves of grey will be present in the overall “grey patch”.
The second main color of this complex granite is brown. And these brown colors can vary in tone massively….
Some sections will be light off white brown, others can be golden yellow – some can be a rusty brown color, others can be a dark chocolate brown. Most slabs of this stone will have all of these tones of browns, and again they will be in wavy flowing patterns – but it is impossible to say which brown will be more prevalent than the others.
The final main color is a stunning cream or off white color. Again varying tones will be present, and again they will appear to be in wavy lines and patterns.
What you can be certain of is that your stone will have all of the three main colors in it. But apart from that, everything else can be different.
Some slabs can have a dominating grey color, with very little brown and cream in it. Others can be the opposite and can be nearly entirely cream with little grey. Or you could have a mix of all three colors in equal measure.
How Much Does Fusion Granite Cost?
The complex patterns and intense appearance of this stone makes it highly desirable. This means it has been priced as a ultra premium stone. For a 3cm thick slab of fusion granite you can expect to pay around $80 – $90 per square foot. We could not find accurate price information for 2cm thick slabs.
Fusion granite is usually far too expensive to be used as flooring tiles. So its main usage is in kitchen countertops and backsplashes. Needless to say the incredibly powerful and complex patterns dominate any room they are used in.
With dark cabinets or with light cabinets, it does not matter – this stone will be the boss of the room. We cannot really go into the specifics in this guide – because the stone varies so darn much!
Our overall general advice however is to ensure you do not have any other strong patterns in your kitchen. Things like floral or patterned wallpaper will compete and clash with the fusion granite countertops, and can look very uninviting.
