This versatile stone can accommodate a variety of finishes to achieve diverse architectural and aesthetic effects. If designers and architects can envision it in stone, HDG and its partner factors can make it happen. See our White Glove Service.
There are a number of hand and machine-applied finishes available for Cristallo White Granite. For surfaces that do not require walking a polished surface finish is attractive. Applications with pedestrian traffic would benefit from a Thermal/Flamed anti-slip finish. Other finishes available include Honed, Antiqued, Brushed, Mushroomed, and Sandblasted.
Mushroomed Cristallo White Mushroom finishes are hand applied to Cristallo White Granite by skilled craftsmen and craftswomen in our partner factory. The effect is that the edges are flat and lower compared to the mid-portion of the stone. This natural and rugged look is used primarily for wall cladding and offers a more authentic representation of natural stone when compared to veneers and faux stone.

We obsess about the details so professionals in the design and building community can focus on making the project vision a reality. We think about all of the opportunities to make a client’s project a stunning success. We are also mindful of the things that could go wrong. We mind those details so you don’t have to.
HDG’s Cristallo White Granite originates from partner quarries in China. It is sometimes referred to as Light Grey Granite, Light Granite, Sesame White Granite, Bianco Granite, Ice White Granite, Crystal White, or Grey Granite.
As with other granite, Cristallo White is among the hardest of natural materials making it resistant to scratching, cracking, and chipping. Applying proper finishes and seals can further protect and prolong projects that utilize this remarkable stone.
This stone is extremely versatile in its applications and appearance. It is suitable for residential, commercial, and municipal projects for both interior and exterior applications.
The combined hardness, durability, excellent performance characteristics, and natural beauty of Cristallo White Granite make it a great choice for applications with high visibility or high pedestrian traffic or both. This stone is equally good for floor and wall applications. It is often used in water features, stair treads and risers, monuments, wall cladding and sills, benches, retaining walls, pavers, and other design ornamental projects.
Outdoor Surface Applications
Granite stone flooring is suitable for any weather condition. It can handle any level of pedestrian traffic and with the proper thickness, this stone will even hold up to vehicle traffic. For applications requiring slip resistance such as granite pavers and flooring applications, HDG partner factories will apply a sandblasted, flamed and brushed, or percussive finishes such as pineapple, lychee, adze, or scored surface finish to the stone surface.
Sizes Cristallo White Granite is available in a variety of sizes from small cobblestone to large monumental blocks and practically any size plank, slab, or block.
