In 2013, a small island formed off the coast of Pakistan after an earthquake, and they named it Zalzala in reference to “The Earthquake” in religious texts. The island itself was dark. Its surface smooth, but with lines and waves. So much of this is like Zalzala granite, including the earthquake itself. Zalzala granite displays dark and naturally wavy lines that carve their path through a light gray stone. Because of the striking black and white flow of this stone, it would look beautiful on either a black or white base.
