BALMORAL GRANITE
  
Fine, polished display piece

Vehmaa, Turku District, SW Finland

This highly attractive and popular granite is of Precambrian age and is mostly composed of brick-red potassium feldspar, smoky quartz, biotite mica and hornblende.

 

It acquired its Scottish-sounding name in the early 20th century, a time when granites from Scandinavia were shipped to Aberdeen to be cut and polished before being re-exported all over the World. 

 

This is a very good sample which displays extremely well. It is polished on one side and has a flat base for display.
