Granite is the best known light colored igneous rock found on earth’s surface and is the most abundant rock in the continental crust. Granite is composed mainly of quartz and feldspar with minor amounts of mica, amphiboles and other minerals. It usually gives light colored igneous rock a red, pink, gray or white color with dark mineral grains visible throughout the rock. The word “granite” is used by people who sell and purchase cut stone for structural and decorative use. Granite is used to make many objects that we encounter in daily life, these include countertops, floor tiles, paving stone, curbing, stair treads, building veneer and cemetery monuments.

These characteristics make it a very desirable and useful dimension stone for luxury finishes in walls, floors and countertops.
