I believe it is honed granite. It is seamed in a number of places, both for installation and for expansion. I would discuss your situation with the stone slab supplier, as I think you are correct to be cautious. Not all granite is the same.

Good luck with your project.

It is honed bluestone and will hold up to the harsh Chicago weather.Viking and Danver appliances. Other items include trash pull out and many storage drawers. Hursthouse landscape built this island.

Can you identify all the appliances there? I think I'd be happy with a grill, sink and small fridge. What are all the other things?
