Granite is one of the most common rocks in the crust of continents, and is formed by the slow, underground cooling of magma. Granite is quarried from dozens of countries around the world, making it one of the most popular natural stones on the market. Available in an array of colors, granite’s durability and longevity make it ideal for heavily used surfaces. And because of its exceptional strength, granite also is well suited for exterior applications.
Granite is a natural stone; therefore, patterns and colors vary from slab to slab, even within a single slab. These natural variations ensure a uniqueness not found in other natural stones.
Granite is one of the hardest and least porous stones used for countertops. Granite is nearly impossible to scratch.
