What is Granite?
Granite, one of the hardest natural materials known to man, is composed primarily of quartz, feldspar and mica. The stone is quarried in large blocks which are then cut into slabs and polished. Granite is an igneous rock, meaning that it was once molten magma. Millions of years of time coupled with the earth’s pressure has resulted in a wide variety of colors, textures and unique crystal patterns all breathtaking pieces of natural beauty.
Unquestionably the most durable and maintenance-free product you could choose for your countertops. Granite is being used for all sort of building applications. It is resistant to heat, scratching and, when treated with quality impregnating sealers, stain-free. In other words, virtually indestructible. Put simply, Granite countertops installed today will look just as magnificent 40 years from now.
