Granite’s natural beauty and timeless appeal make it a highly sought-after material. Its elegance adds value to homes, and its durability appeals to buyers. Granite is composed of quartz and feldspar, which are harder than steel, and mica minerals. This combination gives granite a score of 7 on Moh’s hardness scale; only topaz (8), corundum (9), and diamond (10) rank higher. Granite does not scratch and is naturally heat-resistant.
Granite comes in hundreds of colors and patterns, all with unique gradations and movement. This variety allows you to choose whether you want your finished countertop to shine with unassuming elegance, or to make a bold “look at me” statement. Whatever you choose, granite’s sleek, rich appearance will be a rewarding selection for your kitchen.
