Granite is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock. Granites are usually white, black, or buff color and are medium to coarse-grained, occasionally with some individual crystals larger than the groundmass forming a rock known as porphyry. Granite can be pink to dark gray or even black, depending on its chemistry and mineralogy.
Outcrops of granite tend to form tors, rounded massifs, and terrains of rounded boulders cropping out of flat, sandy soils. Granite sometimes occurs in circular depressions surrounded by a range of hills, formed by the metamorphic aureole or hornless. Granite is nearly always massive, tough, and it is, for this reason, gained widespread use as a construction stone.
Granite is a remarkable natural stone that comes in a wide variety of colors and textures. It is a hard, durable stone that requires very little maintenance and can be used for a number of your home improvement projects. Granite is an ideal product for high-traffic areas such as your bathroom and kitchen because it will maintain its original appearance for years and the tile is stain and scratch-resistant.
Granite, an incredibly dense and hard-working material, comes in an amazing array of colors and textures. Granite tiles that are available in various sizes and thicknesses are used for indoor and outdoor applications for flooring, cladding walls, or pavers. Granite slabs are used for fabricating kitchen countertops, vanity tops, and other surfaces.
Marble is a metamorphic rock resulting from regional or at times contact metamorphism of sedimentary carbonate rocks, either limestone or dolostone. This metamorphic process causes a complete recrystallization of the original rock into an interlocking mosaic of calcite and/or dolomite crystals. The temperatures and pressures necessary to form marble usually destroy any fossils and sedimentary textures present in the original rock.
Pure white marble is the result of the metamorphism of very pure limestones. The characteristic swirls and veins of many colored marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone. Green coloration is often due to serpentine resulting from originally high magnesium limestone or dolostone with silica impurities. These various impurities have been mobilized and recrystallized by the intense pressure and heat of the metamorphism.
The polished solid surfaces offer a diverse variety of attractive colors with an elegant finish and silky feel that is smooth to the touch. Their light-reflecting gloss offers the perfect solution for today’s contemporary design requirements and their minimal care requirements make them wonderfully easy to live with.
