Product Description

Choose one of our full size premium Absolute Black Granite Surround Facing for a professional designer look for your fireplace; an alternative to inexpensive tile surrounds. Granite is more uniform in color, stronger and more stain resistant than marble, and has few, if any, flaws.

Absolute Black, also known as Nero Zimbabwe, has a slight dimensional look, with a dark black background and flecks of various charcoal colors with an occasional silver quartz pinpoint sparkle. Standard Kits include 3/4" granite. View the alternate images above to see how Absolute Black granite facing surrounds look with a variety of fireplace mantel woods and finishes. Note: we only offer this (and all our marbles and other granites) polished (not honed.)

  1. Great look for Absolute black 5 Star Review

    We were concerned with the final product, but once it arrived, it looked awesome. The shipping container was very sturdy and protected the stone well.
