As our darkest stone, Black Beauty stakes its claim for its black to charcoal colors with the high Iron content. From afar the profile eludes a dark silhouette of intrigue. Upon close inspection that shadowy figure reveals fine detail of tiny iron & mica flecks fused into the stone. This stone is Not recommended for exterior installations as it will continue to oxidize with water. Black Beauty hits its stride around fireplaces, interior walls, chimneys, and kitchens. For a real unique twist on the color, check out the Face Cuts in our Mosaic and Square/Rectangle with deep brown and tan highlights across the body of the stone.
