Granite is an igneous rock (formed by heat) found deep within the Earth’s crust. Once quarried, cut, polished, & sealed granite is nearly impervious to scratches, heat, etching, staining, or weathering. It is truly one of Mother Nature’s most versatile and beautiful creations.
Most granite is quarried in Brazil & India. However, we also have access to stones from Russia, Spain, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Norway, & Finland. The majority of these rocks are imported to the UK via Spain & Italy where they are cut and polished into the forms you are able to see at your stone yard. The most common use for granite today is in building and remodeling projects such as vanity and kitchen countertops. The look, feel, durability, and re-sale value of a granite kitchen countertop is unmatched by any other solid surface material on today’s market. The granite textures available are Polished, Honed and Flamed.
