Especially hard, Blanco Romano is great for outdoor use as well. Being so light in color, it stays cooler in the summertime. Bianco Romano has many aliases such as; Blanco Romano, Bianca Romano, White Romano, Nova Branco Romano, Tropical White, and Pashmina. Depending on what fabricator you use, this beautiful granite may be called one of these.
Quarried in India, Ivory Fantasy granite is a great alternative if you want a light color for your countertops but want it a little more subdued.

This exotic granite is quarried out of Brazil. It gets its name from the white coloring with beige or brown veins that resemble an Alaskan mountaintop.

As Ivory Fantasy, White Fantasy Granite is quarried in India. This beautiful, truly white granite, contains gray and almost black veins.

All white granite is rare and expensive, as most imported things are. However, if you are really wanting a marble look without the extra care marble requires or something more durable, white granites can accomplish this for you. It is always best to directly choose your slab or acquire many samples to be sure the colors do not vary, hence coming from the same side of the quarry. Installed and maintained properly, your white granite countertops are a great investment, as they have the ability to outlast you.
