Granite Formation and Uses

Granite is formed of large grains of feldspar and quartz that fuse under intense heat and pressure in the earth's crust. Granite materials were once super heated masses of liquid rock that have cooled slowly over thousands of years. Because of the hardness of the minerals that granite is made of it is harder than steel and comfortably resists the wear of high traffic indoor use as well as outdoor environments. Granite is the perfect surface for kitchen applications because of it's natural heat resistance and unsurpassed durability.
