The topic arose because I was asking about availability of "Verde Oceano." It
may not be a true granite but it's amazingly beautiful - lots of iridescence. It
looks like an underwater scene complete with brightly colored tropical fish.
Photos are totally insufficient. Adding that to your granite project would be
quite a task (maybe for the next granite update sometime around 2050), but lots
of granites do have iridescence - or at least stones that are being sold as
granite whatever they might actually be...


Kind regards,
