What is Granite?
Granite is a type of igneous rock that is composed mainly of quartz, feldspar, and mica. It is formed when molten magma cools and solidifies beneath the Earth’s surface, and is characterized by its coarse-grained texture and speckled appearance.
Granite is a very hard and durable material, making it popular for use in a variety of applications, including as a building material, for sculpture, and as a countertop material in kitchens and bathrooms. It is prized for its beauty, durability, and resistance to scratches, heat, and staining.
Granite is available in a wide range of colors and patterns, with variations in the mineral content and grain structure of each slab producing unique and individual appearances. It is typically quarried from large, open pits and cut into slabs or tiles for use in construction and decorative applications.
