Green Eyes granite--anyone have pictures?

I am thinking of putting this in my kids' bathroom on their vanities, but I have not viewed it in person yet. How does it compare to green butterfly or verdura? And, how does it look honed? thanks.

My opinion is not for a kids vanity or at least not what I would consider for a kid's room. I mean it's pretty but so growny..lol.

I don't know what other counter top material you would suggest. Green granite is for grown-ups only? ;)

I know it's almost taboo, but you may want to consider Corian for your kids' bath, it's softer...anything dropped on granite will break.

Corian is at least 50% pricier around here compared to granite.

I went with corian in our master bath and am very happy....seamless sink, much warmer and softer than granite and I think it's good looking and very durable.

I would think that unless you are selecting a very common granite, prices would be comparable with corian.

Also taboo to mention, I'm sure, but for kids, I would consider a high end formica type product...it too is durable soft and warm. The high def types can be very attractive.

Corian is off pantent and there are a lot of different makers out there producing the same material without the brand name. A knockoff Corian will be about half of the price of a premium granite like Green Eyes unless you are getting a granite remnant for free. It will also be more functonal for kids.
