By definition granite is an igneous rock with at least 20% quartz and up to 65% alkali feldspar by volume. Granite is a natural stone that forms deep below the Earths surface. It is made up of large crystals of quartz, feldspar, mica and other minerals that make up a unique color and texture of stone.
Granite is a very hard and durable decorative stone. Each slab has its own uniqueness. The different colors and styles make it a great choice for countertops. It is very strong and resilient, and has a resilience to abrasions, chips, scratches and heat. Once it is sealed you are safe from stains, mold and mildew.
