What is granite?
Granite is a natural stone and has been used as a building material for many centuries. Granite is an igneous rock which means that it is formed by volcanic activity, which strength approaches that of diamonds.
The granite mineral composition is composed primarily of quartz, mica and feldspar as well as other minerals. The minerals are what determine the color variations in the stone.
