The Stone with Diverse Uses
Granite is a fairly tough material. It is a common type of felsic intrusive igneous rock that is granular and phaneritic in texture.Granites can be predominantly white, pink, or grey in colour, depending on their mineralogy. Granite is used in buildings, bridges, paving, monuments, and many other exterior projects. Indoors, polished granite slabs and tiles are used in countertops, tile floors, stair treads and many other design elements. Formed over millions of years from compressed molten rock under the Earth’s surface, granite is extremely hard and durable. With its heat-resistant qualities, granite doesn’t blister; it’s also unlikely to scratch or chip. When used, it’s far superior to marble, synthetic and laminate.
