The granite quarried in the countries of China, India, and Brazil comprises approximately 2/3 of the granite used worldwide. There are granite quarries in operation in dozens of countries, and it is one of the most popular natural stones on the market. Available in a striking array of colors, granite's durability, longevity, and economy make it ideal for kitchen countertops and other heavily used surfaces, including table tops and floors.
Some synthetic surfaces scratch easily, while the hardness of the minerals comprising most granites surpass that of the utensils that are used on them, resulting in excellent scratch resistance. Granite is typically heat resistant up to temperatures of 250 degrees Celsius (480 degrees Fahrenheit) although direct application of localized heat sources is discouraged.
Below are some of the granite colors that we carry, but other colors are available upon request.
