Granite is one of the most popular countertop materials we offer. Known for its incredible beauty and amazing durability, granite is the perfect material for a brand new kitchen. Granite is an intrusive, igneous rock, meaning that it was formed in a molten hot state well beneath the Earth’s crust. As the magma rose to the surface, it cooled and hardened, forming much of the current continental crust. Embedded in the rock matrix are minerals such as quartz, mica, and feldspar. Granite is a popular countertop option because of the sheer variety when it comes to color and pattern. In fact, there are no two slabs of granite in the world which are exactly alike.
Granite is one of the hardest substances in the world. This is what makes granite so sought after as a countertop. For the simple fact that it is extremely durable and it cannot be damaged by scratching. You can cut on a granite countertop without worrying about leaving any marks at all.
Granite is found all over the world and is one of the most common minerals that can be found in the Earth. Some of the most common areas where granite is harvested include Brazil, Norway, India, Spain and the United States. Granite has been used for thousands of years in a variety of structures, including the great pyramids of ancient Egypt.
