What is Granite? Top 4 Types of Granite

Things you need to know before buying Granite?


Granite is a beautiful natural stone, which is made up of feldspar, quartz, mica and other minerals. These stones are hard igneous rocks, which are formed underneath the earth from the slow crystallization of magma during volcanoes. We can find granite in many places which had volcano activity in the last million years.

Granites have been using for flooring in buildings from history has been started. The use of granites are intended to last for many years and widely used in building monuments, graveyards, commercial, industrial buildings and independent houses for different purposes like flooring, kitchen worktops, staircases, building blocks, tiles etc..

Usage of granite is less because of its high-price but mostly preferred for expensive projects due to its durability and long lasting quality.

Granite possesses hard substance properties which can bear a significant amount of weight on it and resistant to chemicals & all types of weather conditions, which makes an excellent choice to use for flooring in all types of works.
