I totally agree that a soft and neutral tile is desirable to compliment your rich and warm Orion granite. My recommendations are choices such as Merola Cobble Polar Ceramic Subway tile, or a Mediterranean Ivory tumbled travertine from Daltile. I've attached pictures for your reference. Hope this helps!

    Saw a BEAUTIFUL and DRAMATIC piece of Orion Gold this weekend!  It looks like it will go perfectly with our off white maple cabinets with coffee glaze and wood flooring.  What backsplash do you recommend?  I was thinking it should be kept simple with an occasional copper accent.  Granite has enough WOW factor...don't want to over due it. Can't imagine getting anything other than stainless steel appliances but am starting to wonder if that will clash if I draw copper into the room. What do you think?

    05:01PM, Feb 6 2012 At this moment we only carry the Orion LH which has a river wash finish instead of a polished finish. Since this is a super premium product, we have to give you a separate estimate reflecting the pricing on this rare stone.  You may contact the Ridgefield Park, NJ or Danbury, CT facility to provide you with pricing on this stone since only these 2 locations carry it. Good luck!
  • Nancyludy1012 09:24PM, Feb 2 2012 I tried to find Orion granite as an option when calculating an estimate on-line but could not find it. What pricing group is it part of?

    12:24PM, Jan 9 2012 This stone does not have blue tones but the grays in it may look slightly blue at different angles. The bottom photo is of the entire slab.
  • Cookie 02:42AM, Jan 8 2012 Is there blue in this granite?  The top 2 pictures don't seem to, but the bottom picture looks bluish.  Thank you!

    05:07PM, Jul 20 2011 I like the drama of a full backsplash especially with a unique and timeless stone like the Orion. My vote is for a full backsplash with the same granite!

    04:45PM, Jul 20 2011 I'd use tile that is a few shades lighter on the backsplash, as the countertop is quite dark when using this stone. Try a tumbled Noce or Mocha travertine tile.
