Stone Showcase: Minsk Green Gold Granite Countertop in Harrisburg

This gorgeous natural stone is a granite called minsk green gold.  Its beauty is in the color variations and complete movement throughout the stone.  It’s one of my favorite stones because of that.  You’ll find shades of green, copper, gold grey and creamy white.  It’s compatible to several cabinet colors such as maple, grey, white or black.  And as for appliances its diversity lends itself to most appliance color options too.

After the job was complete, I contacted the Herigans to share their shopping, buying, and installation experience with you.  Here’s what Pat Herigan had to say:

How did you find out about us?
Our son used Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile when he redid his kitchen and the counter tops were beautiful.  At the time we were not considering installing new countertops, but when our neighbor Brad asked us if we knew any reputable countertop people, we recommended Lesher simply based on what we saw at our son’s home.  When we saw Brad’s kitchen after the installation and heard how pleased he was with the job, we decided to consider installing granite in our home.  


There are many places to purchase countertops.   Why did you choose Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile?
We never considered anyone but Lesher because of the recommendation of our son and our neighbor.


What did you think of the process at Lesher?
 I really appreciated the way that Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile coordinated all of the steps along the way from scheduling the removal and disposal of our old countertops and sink to the installation and hook up of plumbing for our new sink and faucet as well as the installation of the tile backsplash.


Was it easy for you to decide on the minsk green gold granite and then the tile backsplash?
I am easily overwhelmed when I have too many choices and have difficulty envisioning the finished product. However, Kurt spent time with us explaining our options and was very patient as I made up my mind. I took a sample of our kitchen floor with me and used the wood samples Kurt had to help with my choice.  I was deciding between the minsk green gold and another design, but my husband also liked the minsk green gold so that was a deciding factor.  It also coordinated well with the rest of our existing decor.  I chose the tile backsplash because I saw it in the showroom and loved it.  That was the easiest step in the entire process!


Are you happy with your choices?  Is there anything you would change?
 I am very happy with my choices.  If I could change anything, I would have a bigger kitchen so I could install more granite.  I will never regret installing these countertops.  Every day I enjoy them and appreciate how easy it is to care for them.  Although I did not get new cabinets or appliances, these countertops made my kitchen look and feel “brand new”!


Any words of wisdom for others getting ready to buy new countertops?
My words of wisdom for others getting ready to buy new countertops are “Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile.”  Everyone who worked on this project – Kurt, the removal team, the plumber, the installation crew, and the tile man – were all professional, friendly and courteous. I was impressed not only with the quality of Lesher’s product but also with the quality of the people working for them.
Well thank you Pat for sharing your story.  In today’s market there are many choices for countertops.  Pat made a good choice because in the end, she is happy with the results.  We invite you to come in to see and experience the “Lesher Difference” in quality crafted countertops.
If we did your countertops, we’d love to share your story.  Please contact me at
