Default Re: New granite counter top question

The stone you chose looks like its a heavily weathered metamorphic rock. The weathering process gives it the subtle brown color. Seems like that would make it pretty difficult to work with as a slab. It also looks like the crack is due to a quartz vein or something. I don't think they should have used that part of the slab for a countertop. I would demand it be replaced as that crack and flaking will probably only get worse. I wouldn't let them get away with just sealing it with something.
