Balmoral Red, fine-grained


Balmoral Red - fine-grained is the classic granite that first made Finnish granite known worldwide for its quality and deep, rich red colour. It is quarried by Finska at Vehmaa in the south-western part of Finland. Quarry was opened already in 1901, so it's one of the oldest operating quarries in the world.

Balmoral Red fine-grained material takes a very glossy finish when polished. Because of its excellent properties it is used for monuments, and, when very high quality is required, as a building stone.

Balmoral Red - fine-grained is suitable for both exterior and interior purposes, especially for monuments and as a high class building stone. It's main use is for facades, floors and interior wall claddings.
