Granite

Granite is a widely occurring group of intrusive rocks that form underground at great depth and pressure. It is composed primarily of quartz, feldspar, and mica. The stone gets its incredible variety of colors and patterns from minerals that are melted into a liquid mass during formation. With its deep rainbow colors, granite offers that elusive, one-of-a-kind beauty created only by nature. The stone comes in various colors and stylish patterns, making it the most versatile and trendy of all stones. Granite allows it to be highly polished to expose its natural characteristics, honed for a matt finish, or flame-textured for an aged, antique look. These finishes are sometimes combined to produce interesting patterns and features—ideal for kitchen countertops and vanity tops.

Granite is a natural stone mined in quarries. It is a very durable heat and scratch-resistant stone. Because it is a natural stone, the designs and patterns of the slabs can never be identical. The stone will retain its color indefinitely. Granite is an ideal material for kitchen and bathroom countertops and outdoor kitchens due to its durability. Choosing the right color and finish will add to the aesthetics of your project design.
What colors are available?
Granite can be elegant and luxurious or casual and contemporary, depending on your chosen color and finish. Each piece of granite is unique; designs vary from large sweeping patterns to intricate structures. The options are endless, from greens, blues, and blacks to pinks, whites, and yellows. Slabs also vary in patterns – some have large and intricate designs and movements while others are more subtle.
