Granite is a light-colored igneous rock, coarse-grained. This natural stone consists mainly of quartz and feldspars with some amounts of amphibole minerals and mica. It is harder than marble and has visible grains.
Granite industry uses granite stone to create everyday objects like countertops, wall and floor tiles, paving stone, stair treads, curbing, and building veneer.
When they quarry granite from the Earth, they cut it into slabs or blocks. These granite slabs and blocks need to have a specific width, thickness, and length. Granite industry uses these slabs further for different purposes depending on these characteristics.
All types of granite are perfect for everyday use because they are heavy and strong, water resistant, wear and tear resistant, and durable. Countertops, floors, and walls made of different types of granite are also beautiful because this stone gets its full shine when polished.
All these characteristics make all types of granite a highly desirable stone for multiple uses in both residential and commercial interior.
