Granite is an important structural and decorative stone. It’s used for immense structural work due to its high compressive strength. Granite is extremely suitable in the kitchen as well as in the bathroom, partly because of its beauty but also because granite requires minimal maintenance. Its natural beauty is the main characteristic enjoyed by many, along with its versatility.
Granite is composed of quartz, feldspars, micas and other minerals. These minerals contribute to the colour and texture of the granite stones. Granites get their wonderful variety of colours and patterns from minerals that are melted into the liquid mass as it is formed.
Granite spans both in colour and patterns and is found throughout the colour spectrum – black, brown, red, yellow, blue, green and white.
Common uses for granite include: Kitchen countertops, vanity tops, bath surrounds, window sills, outdoor counters, bar countertops, staircase cladding and wall cladding.
