Granite colors - material description with help from Wikipedia.


The word granite comes from the Latin: granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a crystalline rock. It is a common, widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock with at least 20% content of quartz by volume. Granite usually has a medium- to coarse-grained texture and
its color can vary a lot, depending on its chemistry and mineralogy.


The average density of granite is between 2.65and 2.75 g/cm3, its compressive strength usually lies above 200 MPa, and it melts above 1200 °C. Granite is massive, hard and tough, and for that reason it has gained widespread use as a construction stone. Its surface can be polished to high gloss finish and as such it is widely used as decorative, hard surface for: monuments, building facades, walls, floors or countertops.


Thanks to its qualities, granite is very suitable as a material of choice for any hard, finish surface at home. There are no limitations. Properly installed, it will last for generations.
