to Ubatuba Granite Co., Ltd.
Ubatuba is a Brazilian city, located on the southeast coast, in the state of Sao Paulo. The origin of the name comes from the Tupi words uyba (arrows or canoes) and tuba (many).
Uba Tuba granite is an igneous rock formed under extreme temperature and pressure in a molten state which solidifies as it rises up from within the earth. Quarried on a mass scale in brazil, it is shipped all over the world.
It has a quartz and mica composition with a tightly packed grain pattern. It is one of the hardest and most dense of stones. Because of this, it is very durable, readily withstanding heat and water, and easily resisting wear.
In its polished state, it has a nice hard but smooth feel. All of these properties make it an ideal material for use in countertops, especially in harsh kitchen environments. It can easily withstand the abuse of hot pots and pans, harsh cleansers, and the scuffing of utensils.
