Granite is the signature rock of the planet Earth, a natural beauty full of curiosities. Granite is made of large mineral grains that fit tightly together, and it consists of the mineral quartz and feldspar with or without a wide variety of other minerals. Almost all granite is igneous (solidified from a fluid state) and plutonic (from magma cooled and solidified below the surface of the Earth ). Depending on the exact combination of the minerals within the granite, its color can range from very light to a very dark gray, almost black. The color of the constituent minerals determines the color of the granite. Quartz, for instance, occurs in a range of shades from yellowish-white to pink; a high proportion of quartz will produce a light granite dominated by one of these colors.
Darker granite may contain a concentration of hornblende or mica. Because the proportions of minerals vary from place to place, no two quarries will produce granite that looks identical.
So you may ask yourself, "Why should I go with granite?"
Well, there are many advantages and benefits to having granite countertops.
