Granite Colors

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.

Amongst all the different types of materials used for making headstones, granite is the most popular one in the market.  Durability and the beautiful look of granite are the main reasons behind its popularity as a material for making high quality granite grave markers.  Granite is a kind of igneous rock composed of four different minerals such as mica, quartz, hornblende and feldspar.  Granite is used for making headstones as it can withstand pressure and can bear the natural calamities.  At the same time, the engraving done on granite stone is visible for years to come. Also, granite is available in a wide variety of colors and crystalline textures which can suit different tastes and preferences.

Headstones made of granite are highly popular in the market, as granite is regarded as the strongest type of material in the world.  When looking for a granite headstone, one needs to remember that there are different types of granite and there are differences between two types of granite. These differences can be noticed in color, strength, bulk density, compressive strength and so on. Granite headstones are exceedingly strong and will last for thousands of years. 

When you shop for granite memorials, you will see that some granite tombstone colors are more expensive than others. Here, pricing of headstones are decided on the rarity of the material rather than the color quality. So, when buying a granite headstone, you need to give stress on the quality aspect and opt for one that suits your taste and budget.
