Granite Information

The main minerals in true granite are silicates, feldspar, and quartz. Exact and current extraction figures are not available, as data collection from many countries is difficult. Statistics from various sources indicate that the granite quarried in the countries of China, India, and Brazil comprises approximately 2/3 of the granite used worldwide. There are granite quarries in operation in dozens of countries, and it is one of the most popular natural stones on the market. New granite resources are continually being located and developed throughout the world.

Beauty of Granite
Out of all the different types of natural stone, granite is by far the most diverse. Materials vary from consistent / homogeneous patterns to random movement designs. Nature also provides us with a full spectrum of color options.  The final appearance of the polished surface is determined by the specific composition and distribution of quartz, feldspars and other minerals. No two slabs are ever the same. Add in the different types of finishes, such as polished, honed, and leathered, the possibilities are endless!

Quartzites and Sandstones
Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that is formed from sandstone. Quartzite can be of exceptional strength, density, and hardness. In some deposits, intrusion of minerals during the formation process creates unusual coloration. Quartzites are rarer than most granites and usually demand a higher price. But their incredible colors and patterns make this material ultra unique.
