Some examples of cheaper granite colors are Ubatuba, Verde Butterfly, Luna Pearl and Baltic Brown. These colors are all considered part of the Group A category of granite.
Granite retailers separate their granite selections into groups or levels based on price. Stone rarity, thickness, origin and market availability are all factors that affect the price. Group A, or Group 1, granites are generally the most common and available granite, therefore the least expensive. Each group contains progressively more unusual and expensive granite. Group E, or Group 5, granites are considered exotic and rare. Cheaper granite colors have equal, or possibly even higher, quality and durability compared to more expensive stones colors.
