What is Granite?
Nothing compares to the unique beauty of natural stone. Granite is a natural stone that is formed together when its molten substances cool and solidify slowly in the depths of the Earth. Granite is composed of a combination of minerals, most recognizably quartz. Quartz is a mineral that is well known for its hardness and ability to resist erosion. For this reason, granite is an everlasting material that will withstand the test of time in virtually any environment.
Granite comes from quarries, which are open-pit mines from which rocks or minerals are extracted. The natural stone is removed from these quarries in large sections, also known as slabs. Because of its origins in nature, granite slabs may contain color and pattern variations that make each piece of granite truly unique.
