What is the name of this granite?

Just purchased a home that has this for the countertop in the kitchen. Friends and family love it and ask for the name, but I have no idea! I'm also curious as well. Can anybody identify it?

Nice color, because it looks good with a lot of wall colors.

Looks like "Silver Sea" or "Silver Sea Green" granite. Despite the name, it's barely green, just has a faint undertone of it.

Might also be "Cordoba Gray" or "Newport" or ????

Names are so variable, and so is the stone.

It looks a lot like Santa Cecilia to me. If you google that name you'll see several images of it. Hope that helps!

Santa Cecilia was one of our top choices so I looked at the sample for days, lol.

Thanks for the replies! Yes, I think it is Santa Ceceilia. The google images look just like it!

Oh look! A TRUE granite! From the rock point of view, that is a textbook granite. And a beautiful one at that. I like the whiteness of it.

I was about to say the same thing. That stone reminds me of all the granite domes up at Yosemite, though the High Sierra granite may even be a tiny bit whiter.

Nice counter!

I'm thinking Santa Cecilia too!

Either Santa Cecelia or Giallo Ornamental.. both can vary a lot with greenish gray, gold and beige undertones (and be mistaken for each other).

Here is a link that might be useful: Giallo Ornamental

Thanks for all the replies! Santa Ceclia and Giallo Ornamental look so similar!

Giallo Ornamental is what we chose for our master bath vanities and it does look close to santa cecilia but maybe with more gold tones. I'll try to remember to post a pic here when it comes next week.
