Developments in granite
The Levantina Granite Collection is a line of original and exclusive materials for granite countertops, and the materials were selected to be in line with the latest trends in decor and interior design. These stones have optimum hardness and durability, and they are available in unusual and exotic varieties from all over the world. The blocks are processed Levantina’s factory in Porriño, Spain.
Levantina Granite Collection slabs are treated with a revolutionary antibacterial treatment that is unique in the granite sector, making the material ideal for use in food preparation areas.
Slabs in the Granite Collection also receive premium anti-stain treatment during the manufacturing process, and they also have optimum heat resistance.
One example of the company’s growth in granite production is the material Lennon, which is extracted from one of Levantina’s many company-owned quarries. It is located in the state of Goiás, Brazil.
Lennon is characterized by its large gray crystals with bluish and white tones as well as long mica crystals. It is sold in both slabs and tiles, and its characteristics allow for the following finishes: polished, honed, sandblasted, riverwashed, leather and flamed.
The stone is one of the core products in the Granite Collection, and it is widely used as a countertop for kitchens and bathrooms. Moreover, its neutral tone makes it easy to be combined with other materials, and its versatility allows it to be used on floors and walls in both indoor and outdoor applications.
