Granite has been extensively used as a dimension stone and as flooring tiles in public and commercial buildings and monuments throught the ages. Polished granite is also a popular choice for kitchen countertops due to its high durability and aesthetic qualities. In building and for countertops, the term "granite" is often applied to all igneous rocks with large crystals, and not specifically to those with a granitic composition.
A granite countertop is the perfect choice for your kitchen, bath, bar or outdoor kitchen While granite, marble, limestone, travertine, slate and soapstone are all beautiful, some are better suited than others for a particular use.
Surface patterns typically will have a flecked or pebbled appearance which can vary in size and shape and in the density of the pattern depending on the particular mix of quartz, crystals and minerals that make up the stone.
Colors include many choices in golden browns, pale pinks, deep plums, romantic reds, exotic blues, greens, blacks and many subtle shades in-between.
Remember, granite counter tops and other stones developed their color and pattern over millions of years of natural formation creating a surface that is truly unique.
Versatile, resilient and naturally beautiful, granite is an excellent surface for any project you're planning. No other natural stone or engineered stone can match granite's numerous and unique characteristics.
