Impervious, stoic, and enduring are the most defining terms for granite stone. Despite its formative nature, granite provides a more subtle but all encompassing quality and sturdy elegance to any home. From the rise of the pyramids at Giza and structures marking the lands of India, granite became the very foundation stone to man's early architectural brilliance and continue to obtain prominence in any household. Granite is commonly featured in the construction of outdoor counter tops, kitchens, and bathrooms. An igneous rock of granular and phaneritic texture provides this rugged, durable stone with instant demand for its resistance to elements and extreme durability with very little maintenance. The three main elements fused to create the stalwart formation are quartz, mica, and feldspar. The journeyman of the stone world, granite instills a purposeful yet aesthetic appeal to any home or commercial project.
