Granite Facts
Granite is a very hard, crystalline, igneous rock primarily composed of feldspar quartz accompanied by one or more dark minerals. It is visibly homogeneous in texture. The term "Granite" is derived from the Latin word "Granum" meaning "grain" because of its granular nature. Granite is the hardest building stone, and granite slabs and granite tiles occupy a prominent place among dimensional stones. Due to its hardness, resistance to weathering, capability to take mirror polish, fascinating colors and textural patterns, granite slabs and granite tiles are extremely popular.

The principal characteristics of granite also include high load bearing capacity, crushing strength, abrasive strength, amenability to cutting and shaping without secondary flaws, ability to yield thin and large slabs and - above all - durability. Due to the dense grain, granite is impervious to stain. Polished granite slabs and granite tiles have achieved a special status as building stones globally. Granite is also used for wall cladding, roofing, flooring, and a variety of other interior and exterior applications.
