What is Granite? Granite is a light-colored coarse-grained igneous rock composed chiefly of orthoclase and quartz or microcline. The mineral is one of the most common rocks in the crust of continents, and is formed by the slow crystallization of magma.
The rock has been used in a variety of ways for thousands of years as dimension stone, construction material, decorative, and architectural stone. The natural stone has also been used in bridges, paving and in multiple exterior projects. As an elegant and prestigious material, granite is ideal for a range of interior projects.
