It is not an exaggeration to say that the only natural stones harder than granite are diamonds, rubies, and sapphires. The silicate nature have a name… granites have a crystallized quartz sign, as pure as a gem or jewel. The multiple crystalline colors and textures, with geometric and fusion patterns, make granites the most exotic and exuberant stones we can classify. Technology and innovation make it possible to decorate any space with jewels!
Igneous stone means a fire nature, a stone that was crystallized from a deep magma, slowly and quietly for million years and so slowly as it crystallizes, it uplifted as a mountain. Granite typically contains 20-60% quartz, 10-65% feldspar, and 5-15% micas (biotite or muscovite)
Intrusive, or plutonic, igneous rocks crystallize very slowly allowing large, visible crystals to grow.
Dark, granular igneous rocks, classified petrographically as stones like anorthosite, basalt, diabase, diorite, and gabbro, are also used as “black granite.”
When we need permanence, enduring color and texture, and no question freedom from deterioration and maintenance, the granites have prime requirements. In some cases, it is joined in the granite group all the stones with high hardness and chemically resistant, which are well-deserved attributes to granites.
Granite is highly heat, scratch and stain resistant, and is commonly used to face commercial and institutional buildings and monuments. It is unequaled as a material for fireplaces, steps, road and driveway curbing, terraces, and to pave plazas and public spaces.
Blocks and slabs vary in appearance and dimension. As this is natural stone, all pictures are a rough guide.
