GRANITE

Granite is an igneous rock that forms when magma cools slowly beneath the earth’s surface, forming visible crystals of quartz, feldspar and mica. Scientifically, an igneous rock must contain between 10% and 50% quartz to be classified as granite, but other similar stones are sometimes sold as “granite” commercially. Granite countertops come in hundreds of different colors and patterns and they are extremely durable, heat and scratch resistant, which make them very suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. Even though granite is a porous stone, most of them don't even require sealants.
