GENERAL GRANITE INFORMATION

contemporary-kitchen-benchtops

Granite is believed to have been formed as long as 300 million years ago. It began as a mass of molten rock, estimated at 1300 to 1400° F, formed by volcanic activity about 11 or 12 miles below the Earth’s surface. Forces of nature caused the magma to gradually rise to the surface where it began to cool very slowly over the next million years or so, solidifying into granite.

The beauty, which only nature can provide, is inherent in every piece of granite, making it truly a designer’s choice.

Granite is crystalline in structure, so it always has tiny pits or spaces between the various mineral crystals. Granite is not perfectly uniform in color and pattern, nor is it totally free of blemishes.  Granite also contains natural fissures that may appear to be cracks, but they are not structural defects and will not impair the function or durability of the material. They occur naturally and are considered to be part of the beauty of the stone.

Granite is composed primarily of feldspar, quartz, and mica. It may also contain hints of muscovite, biotite, hornblende, and pyroxene and other minerals. These minerals are what give it its various colors. The white mineral grains in granite are feldspar, our planet’s most abundant rock, which makes up about 60% of the earth’s surface. The light gray, glass-like veins are quartz, and the black, flake-like veins are biotite or black mica.

Products made from granite will not depreciate with time and will continuously add value to any property where they are installed. Unlike synthetics, granite presents a surface depth that seems almost three-dimensional.  Regardless of its finish, granite creates an immediate impression of elegance, and is considered a definite plus on any real estate broker’s checklist.

Granite is sold both in tiles and slabs, and is frequently used not only for kitchen countertops, bar tops, and vanities, but also for walls, floors, fireplace surrounds and windowsills. Its unique variations in color and veining turn makes each specimen a natural work of art. It is cool to the touch, and presents an image of classic grace and beauty.

Advantages of Granite

Products made from granite will not depreciate with time and will continuously add value to any property where
they are installed. Unlike synthetics, granite presents a surface depth that seems almost three-dimensional. It has
a luminance that’s absent from other surfaces. Regardless of its finish, granite creates an immediate impression of
elegance, and is considered a definite plus on any real estate broker’s checklist.
