Granite is an “intrusive” igneous rock, known for its durability. It is formed when pools of molten magma beneath the earth’s surface slowly cool and crystallize, resulting in a very uniform, speckled stone that ranges in color from black and gray tones to pinks, browns, reds, greens and whites.

Since all granites are made by nature, no two are the same and all slabs should be reviewed and approved for each project. It is recommended that before buying any countertop material, you get a sample of each and conduct your own tests for staining and heat resistance.
