Granite stone is the toughest and most durable of all the natural stones. It even shines generously when it comes to decorating interiors and exteriors. India and China serve as the leading granite suppliers for those who wish granite to be the centre-of-attraction in their home.
Granite slabs from India and China are popular around the globe. Both countries are the biggest players in the international natural stone market. Right from quarrying to processing and exporting, the countries are involved from start to finish.
Unfortunately, as the Chinese trade landscape has been hit due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the country is facing a major shutdown. Business activity and transportation have been restricted in many cities of China, further impacting the global supply chains.
In such a situation, it is apparent that the global granite demand is under pressure. Hence, to let options be open for customers, Quality Marble India, one of the leading natural stone suppliers offers a list of granite stones. These, more or less, resemble the most popular Chinese stones in look and are as good as in quality and durability.

The Indian Maple Red granite stone is famous for its artistic look that is reminiscent of ancient fort carvings.

This mosaic pattern is a great option for floorings and walls. As Maple Red throws a dark effect, you can combine it with a lighter stone.
