Nothing is more beautiful or more practical than a countertop of natural granite. Granite comes in an extraordinary palette of colors ranging from subtle to dazzling in intensity, as each granite color comes from a different quarry – and no two quarries in the world will yield the same color. Granite is typically made up of three minerals; quartz, feldspar and mica. Because granite is typically the hardest of the dimensional stones and withstands the elements very well, it’s considered the best choice for kitchen countertops. Granite resists scratching, and is stain and heat resistant. It is also suitable for flooring or paving, wall cladding, all other types of countertops and tombstones. You can enjoy the beautiful look of granite for either exterior or interior applications.
