What Type of Countertop Material Is This?

I'm trying to find out if this countertop is granite or what it could be so I know how best to safely clean it (etc).

It is black in color with glitter flakes inside and has the endurance of marble. It definitely won't chip or break easily at all. It is precut to fit our counters in a thick slab as seen in the photo (see below).

Plus you can put bleach or something just out of the oven directly on top of it and it will be fine.

My father thinks it was something that sounded like "coral" (obviously not coral as in from the ocean but sounds the same). Any thoughts?

Thank you!

My husband says it's 'Korian'. He's a general contractor, so he should know :)
Hope this helps.

Your counter top could be Corian, which is a brand name of countertops.

Could the picture below be a sample of the product you have? I don't want to do an ad for the company, so I will give you a small excerpt from their description of this product. And guess what. It is called 'Black Coral'.

I've been looking for a way to post this since I read the first post but can't seem to do it the 'proper' way so I'll post it here. I looked up on the website provided by the first user and saw Corian and that's what I'm thinking it may be!
