Granite has subtle earth tones of exquisite quartz that blends superbly with any decor. It exhibits nature’s richness, strength, and grandeur, and enhances any setting. Not only does it provide one of the most attractive and durable surfaces available, it is highly resistant to scratches, stains and heat. Granite will last virtually forever. Granite does not harbor bacteria, and resealing only needs to be done when water stops beading on the surface – typically in about one a year. Its mineral grains shoe off a heavy crystalline and granular appearance. There are different types of granite depending on the percentage mix of quartz, mica, feldspar and potassium.
