- Granite has always been one of the leading choices when it comes to choosing a stone for outdoor pavers, swimming pool surroundings, garden area patio, or indoor areas. All the way back to the Ancient Egypt times Granite has been an ideal choice for stone due to its durability and the beauty of the stone that adds a unique charm or value to your dream home.
- Granite is a hard igneous stone that is formed over millions of years by volcanic activity. Magma flows from volcanic activity and slowly cools over millions of years. During the process, magma combines with various minerals including hornblend, feldspar, mica and quartz to create its “crystal appearance”. The elements are compressed by forces deep within the earth’s surface. As softer earthen material surrounding granite deposits eroded over time, hard granite became exposed creating quarries of granite.
- Once granite is harvested, it is cut and polished to expose its brilliant beauty. Depending upon geographic locations of granite quarries, its infinite varieties of colors, combined with its hardness and durability makes it ideal for home beautification. It is the ideal stone for outdoor pavers, pool area pavers and coping tiles, backyard sitting area, wall cladding, driveways, stepping stones, pathways and similar other applications. There are two primary “finishes of granite”. It can be highly polished to a brilliant shine or “flamed” to create a finish that is not quite as shiny while exposing the granite’s surface placing more prominence on the minerals that contribute to its unique texture.
- Every selection is unique, customised by nature expressly for you. Variations in granite color and pattern are virtually endless. Names are given to groups of similar colors and textures depending upon the source quarry. Similarities and characteristics are named for convenient identification purposes to help with selection processes.
