Black galaxy is available and used all over the world but is mostly quarried from Andhra Pradesh in India. Here there are three types of black galaxy granite types available. These are the large speckled, medium speckled and small speckled depending on the sizes of the golden colored specks on the black background. The gold specks appear on the surface of the granite due to the presence of ferrous rich Enstatite (type of bronzite which together with iron gives a sub metallic luster). But as the quarrying has increased over the years with the growing demand for the black galaxy granite worldwide, the volume is gradually decreasing to worrisome levels. This will lead to increases in prices over time as the demand will overcome the supply. There are other places in the world where black granite can be found, but the gold speckled black granite which looks like a galaxy in a black sky is a different experience altogether!
