What kind of granite is this? Recommend a cabinet color?

Since moving into our home in Oct. 2012, I've wanted to change the kitchen--everything but the countertops, that is. What type/color of granite is this, though? We may do a small island in something similar. We originally thought we'd paint them a cream color, but I'm leaning more toward a light grey. What do you think?

I should mention they look much darker in person--almost a deep teal green with pops of copper.

looks like Verde Perla or Verde Butterfly. Deep burgundy or medium golden cabinetry looks good, like the garnets & gold veining in your stone. An ivory looks good too. Unlikely the grey will be as good

Wow...THANK YOU! I found this website and it seems to be very close to it!

This granite has a mind of it's own, so you're probably right about the cabinet color--it changes hues all day long. Cream is really the only color that would work at any time of day. :o)

Thanks!!

I think a nice cherry color might look surprisingly nice. Pick up a door at a cabinet store and watch it throughout the day!!!!

Yes Jennifer, I've used Verde Perla many times. It is a wonderful palette of tones & yet not overly busy in person. Glad I was of help
