Kashmir White granite is found in its natural form primarily in India. It is a fine- or medium-grained Eurasian organic stone that dates to the Precambrian period of history. Most prepared slabs of Kashmir White granite are processed either directly in India or exported for processing to China.
Kashmir White granite is one of the lightest, unaffected shades of granite, and perhaps the truest “white” granite available. Though, like all granite, the color variations in Kashmir White granite will differ slightly from slab to slab, the overwhelming appearance is that of a dark white to pale gray stone with very small to medium crimson, maroon, or berry-colored embedded pieces known as garnets.
