Granite is a course grained crystalline igneous rock comprised primarily of quartz. It is formed from the hot fluid magma that moves within the earth’s crust. Magma that cools slowly, under extreme pressure, produces large crystal granites. Magma that cools rapidly, under extreme pressure, produces small crystal granites. This gives it a hardness in nature second only to diamonds; making it the best choice for any work surface in your home.

Granite is:

  • Available in most colors with patterns that entail natural art
  • Chip and scratch resistant
  • Heat resistant
  • Stain resistant
  • Mold, mildew, and bacteria resistant with proper sealing and care

Granite can vary in porosity somewhat, but tends to polish up very well. Granite has wide variations in price depending on color, demand, transportation costs, mining difficulty and so forth. Generally, the blues and greens are more expensive colors.
