Granite: Nature’s Unique Stone
Granite is not one stone but a combination of many. Formed by naturally occurring superheated molten earth, granite and consists of a unique mixture of quartz, feldspar and mica. Once this mixture reaches the surface of the earth and cools, it becomes very dense and hard. In fact, granite is second only to diamonds in its hardness. Because it is resistant to damages such blistering, cracking, and scratching granite is the world's number one choice in natural stone for residential and commercial countertops. Polished granite reflects light beautifully with its high gloss, adding a natural beauty to any space. Various granite types are quarried all over the world as huge blocks and are then reduced into slabs. These slabs are then carefully crafted and fabricated by a granite fabricator to the form you desire. The end result is always one-of-a-kind: though there are similar types and colors, granite's unique mixture of several minerals makes each slab different from every other in at least some respect. For you, this means a truly unique countertop like no other in the world.
