The granite for this counter top is so thick! It must weigh a lot but it is also so beautiful. I would love to redo my counter tops someday.

This looks like Cambrian black granite with a rock pitch edge ( chiseled edge). I love the look of a rock pitch counter with a leathered top finish. You can also do this with most Quartz tops also, they are even easier to achieve this edge than granite.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In the kitchen, the windows above the sink look out to the front garden and make washing dishes a great spot to soak up peaceful nature views. Lower cabinetry contains plenty of storage as well as a flush-mount installed dishwasher.Brad and Linda decided to keep the edge of the gray granite counter tops raw to remind them of the rugged stone around Bowen Island.
