Granite is essentially the emblematic example of what people see when they picture quality stone. Granite has long set the standard by which slabs are evaluated, and rightly so. Granite is a igneous rock with grains large enough to be visible with the unaided eye. It forms from the slow crystallization of magma below Earth’s surface. Granite is a harder stone – it’s comparable to steel in terms of hardness, ranking about a 6 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. It’s combination of unquestionable strength and unlimited visual potential make granite universally revered.
* Natural stone, like nature, has its own distinct characteristics inherent to natural products. Variations in color, pattern, texture and size are to be expected. Final products are not always an exact match to samples and images, since they are quarried at different times from varying locations.
