What is Granite?
Granite is an igneous rock made up from quartz, feldspar, micas, amphiboles, and a mixture of minerals. The stone is quarried straight from the earth in the form of a large block, after which it is sliced into individual slabs and polished to give it its signature smooth, shiny finish.
Since granite occurs naturally (it’s formed by the cooling of magma), each slab is unique. The various minerals and stone types used in the material give granite the numerous colours and textures we see in our quality granite worktops. Many people invest in bespoke granite worktops because they get something distinct, beautiful and custom to their home.
Choice of stone
Quality granite kitchen worktops are one of the most popular worktop stones for very good reason. Some of the most popular reasons to choose this stone are:
- High polish – Due to the slow crystallisation process, granite becomes extremely hard which gives it a high shine polish.
- Scratch-resistant – Quality granite worktops are very difficult to scratch or damage, and can also be stain-resistant when properly sealed.
- Hygienic – Due to its naturally cool surface, granite makes an ideal food preparation area.
- Custom finishes – Granite rock is formed over many years by natural minerals, so no two pieces of granite are the same.
- Easy maintenance – Granite doesn’t need much looking after and can be cleaned with detergent and warm, soapy water.
- Heat resistant – Although granite isn’t completely heatproof, it is still highly heat resistant and most worktops can withstand heat of up to 250°C.
