What granite is this?

We stopped by the the house last Friday (supervised visit) to check on the progress.  We noticed the kitchen granite doesn't look right.  We selected Santa Cecilia but what we found does not look like it.
Can you tell what granite this is?

The patterns and characteristics are total different from the Santa Cecilia.  It looks like a darker version of the Wheat granite in our bathroom.  We don't want our kitchen to look like our bathroom!!

Santa Cecilia looks like this (below) and the above granite looks nothing like it.  This picture (Santa Cecilia) is from my neighbor's house in the same community.

We contacted our PM to verify what was installed and still waiting to hear back from him.

  1. I agree - this definitely looks like the Wheat to me (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-B1MZ2agSHd8/T3Jg0YwdYOI/AAAAAAAAACo/qjFUuEG7rcM/s1600/MB+granite.JPG).

    Make sure to get this verified by your PM!

  2. yeah, we think it's either burlywood (which is slightly darker than wheat) or wheat.

  3. Cant' wait to get the confirmation on which granite they installed. At first glance, I thought it was the St. Cecilia light version since there are three different variations of St. Cecilia. I have the St. Cecilia medium and my neighbor has the dark which is very gold in appearance. What I don't see in the first picture are the little speckles of cherry which tends to stand out in St. Cecilia regardless of the light, medium or dark variations.

    1. Exactly, I know there are color variations of the same stone but certain characteristics of what makes it a St. Cecilia is not there. I'm 100% sure it's something else. Of all the pictures I've looked at (online, or in real life) they all have the little cherry speckles and the black patterns regardless of light or dark.

  4. These two are not the same.. Santa Cecilia has great color variations between cuts, but those two are not the same.. I wish I could post a picture here, but since I can't, Here is a link to the Ryan Homes Level 1 granite selections we took.. of course the only one not labeled is the one you want! Let me know if the link doesn't work - sorry about reposts. they keep disappearing!

  5. the slight pink tones lead me to think it's burlywood. We've seen it installed in bathrooms, but not over a large space like a kitchen counter.

  7. I am sorry but I have Santa Cecilia and it kind of resembles mine :(

    I love mine, but no one else has to...LOL

    I have Espresso cabinets and cherry floors, and the granite is kind of a variation of the both pics you posted. Granite is such a funny creature, I hope it all turns out OK for you.

    1. I just took a look at your kitchen granite (http://dwtimes2.blogspot.com/2013/01/st-cecilia-granite-installed-great-pick.html).

      It looks nothing like yours. I can tell yours is the St Cecilia. It has the patterns that resembles the the St. Cecilia.

  8. Did you find out the verdict on this granite? Honestly, it looks like Wheat; however, since we are working with a picture it,s hard to tell.
