What is Granite?
Granite is a coarse-grained, igneous rock with an even texture and color. It’s composed primarily of quartz and feldspar, with small amounts of mica, hornblende, and other minerals. Granite was formed by molten rock (magma) material beneath the Earth’s surface crust. As it rose, it cooled, and was under tons of pressure for millions of years, allowing it to form a unique crystalline granular structure. As the quartz, feldspars, micas and other minerals fuse into the rock, the granite gets its beautiful array of color and pattern.
