Santa Cecilia is one of the most popular natural granite from Brazil. Santa (or Saint) Cecilia is a Christian martyr and the patroness of church music. You may also see it as “St. Cecilia” and in some stone yards it is referred to as “Venetian Gold”. The beautiful stone is named after her and it is quarried near Sao Paolo, Braszil. The main colors of Santa Cecilia granite countertops are gold and white. The gold color is quarried from a lower depth and the beautiful gold shade is due to millions of years of oxidation. The whiter granite is quarried from bigger depth and that is why the golden disappears and the granite has a whiter shade.
