What is granite?


Granite is a light-colored igneous rock with large grains.  It forms from the slow crystallization of magma below Earth’s surface.  Granite has a lot going on: it has quartz, feldspar (whatever that is) with minor amounts of mica, amphiboles and other minerals.   This mineral composition usually gives granite a red, pink, gray or white color with dark mineral grains visible throughout the rock. It's a pretty common stone, and is used for counter tops, floor tiles, paving stone, curbing, stair treads. I love it for stairs, particularly if because it is very rustic and monumental.
