Is a form of Igneous Rock. Granite is composed primarily of Quartz, Alkalie, and Felspar. Granite is a very dense stone, weighing from 150-190 pounds per cubic foot. This density adds to its strength. Many types of Granite have a low water absorption rate, however they are not impervious to liquids. Many types of Granite have a high compressive strength and abrasion resistance compared to other stones. Granite is not reactive to most acids. What does all this technical stuff mean? It translates into the strongest counter-top material available, less possibility of straining, very scratch resistant, eternally durable, and most of all... Elegantly Beautiful!
