What is Granite?

Granite is a type of stone which is generally millions of years old and in this day considered to be one of the most favorable choices of solid surface for kitchen countertops. Granite is a natural rock composed primarily of quartz and feldspar and mined in mountains from all four corners of the world. Granite comes in all colors and crystal sizes hence adding to the beauty of the natural granite countertops.

What you should know about Granite Countertops.

Granite countertops represent one of the highest end products in countertop productions. Nothing can compare itself to the natural beauty and durability of granite countertops and the choice of colors and patterns are limitless. Because granite is a natural stone one must be educated about the natural variations of stone products. It is the nature of granite to vary from slab to slab and no two finished surface will ever be alike, very much like snowflakes.

Natural stones have fissures, large and small moles, veins and divots that can appear to be chips and imperfections but this is all part of the stones natural appearances. When considering granite one must learn to appreciate the natural inconsistencies of stone formation millions of years ago, very much like birthmarks on a person making that surface unique to non-other. Even the same granite may not match exactly from surface to surface as they maybe cut from different blocks. Still many people choose granite because of many advantages; it's resistant to scratches, its lasting value, and its burn resistant (not burn proof) when hot items are set on it, its reparability if it were ever scratched, its uniqueness and absolute beauty.
