One of the most popular ways to use black/silver pearl granite counters is to pair them with white cabinets. It’s a classic look that’s both clean and sharp. You can see above that the granite slab is polished to a mirror finish. The polished surface deepens the granite’s black onyx color and adds elegance to the room.

Here’s an example of a honed countertop. You can see how the stone slab has a matte finish and is more of a dark gray color than black. Honed stone is simply un-polished. It goes through the same fabrication steps as polished stone until the very end.

Since the counter has a greenish tint, the rest of the kitchen contrasts it with warm tones of reddish-brown and beige. Notice how the emerald pearl granite continues up into the backsplash for a few inches, as well.

5. Granite Black Pearl With Dark Cabinets

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does black pearl granite cost?

Black pearl granite countertops cost about $35 per square foot for thinner slabs, while thicker slabs can cost $50 per square foot.

What level is black pearl granite?

Black pearl granite is usually level two since it comes from India and has a uniform color. A thin slab could be a lower grade.

Level one granite is only about 3/8 inch thick, and big box stores often import it from China. Level two granite comes from India or Brazil and is about 3/4 inch thick. You’ll start to see more color movement at this level. Level three granite and above also often comes from Brazil or India, but the patterns are more striking. This level will showcase bold waves of color and contrasting hues.

Does black pearl granite need to be sealed?

Black pearl granite is one of the hardest varieties of granite. If your granite kitchen countertop is polished, you don’t necessarily need to seal it. However, make sure you know you have true black pearl granite and not a lookalike. If you’re unsure, it won’t hurt to seal it once a year anyway.

Now, if you have honed granite countertops with a matte finish, you can apply an oil or wax to create a uniform shine.

What backsplash goes with black pearl granite?

White and gray marble works well as a backsplash against black pearl granite since it provides good contrast. Also, light or sand-colored stone tiles work great as well. Alternatively, you could simply continue the black pearl granite slab up into your backsplash.
