What is Granite?
Granite is a light-colored igneous rock with grains large enough to be visible with the unaided eye. It forms from the slow crystallization of magma below Earth’s surface.
Granite is composed mainly of quartz and feldspar with minor amounts of mica, amphiboles, and other minerals. This mineral composition usually gives granite a red, pink, gray, or white color with dark mineral grains visible throughout the rock.
Natural stone products are porous and yet durable when properly cared for and maintained. We strongly recommend sealing the stone. A quality impregnating sealer should be used. Only pH neutral cleaners specifically designed for stone should be applied to stone surfaces.
