Granite

Granite is a widely occurring group of intrusive, igneous rocks that form at great depth and pressure under continents. It is composed primarily of quartz, feldspar, and mica. Granite gets its incredible variety of colors and patterns from minerals that are melted into the liquid mass as it is formed. With its deep iridescent colors, granite offers that elusive, one-of-a-kind beauty created only by nature. Granite comes in various colors and stylish patterns, making it the most versatile and trendy of all stones.

Granite can be highly polished to expose its natural characteristics, honed for a matt finish, or flame-textured for an aged, antique finish. These finishes are sometimes combined to produce interesting patterns and features—ideal for kitchen countertops and vanity tops.
