the name I've seen most often used for this stone is VITORIA REGIA. I've also seen it called Safari Green, and I've been told that it is as much serpentine as granite. (This can matter in that serpentine is a bit softer than granite, and softer materials don't hold a shine the same as harder materials.) It's true, it is one of the most beautiful materials I've seen, and "reads" a lot like marble.
