What is Granite countertop Material?
Granite countertops have recently become the material of choice for many homeowners remodeling their kitchens, mainly because granite is a very durable natural material used for home decor. Normal cookware, kitchen knives and cutlery can all be used on granite countertops without fear of scratching the surface. Man-made surfaces such as Formica, Corian, Wood Veneer, Avanza and Silestone cannot match up to the qualities found in granite.
So, What is Granite?
This question has been around for a long time, and it’s difficult to get a straight answer. Searching on Google.com, gives you several sources for answers, from the very scientific:
Granite is a common and widely-occurring group of intrusive felsic igneous rocks that form at great depths and pressures under continents. Granite consists of orthoclase and plagioclase feldspars, quartz, hornblende, biotite, muscovite and minor accessory minerals such as magnetite, garnet, zircon and apatite. Rarely, a pyroxene is present. Ordinary granite always carries a small amount of plagioclase, but when this is absent the rock is referred to as alkali granite. An increasing proportion of plagioclase feldspar causes granite to pass into granodiorite. A rock consisting of equal proportions of orthoclase and plagioclase plus quartz may be considered a quartz monzonite. A granite containing both muscovite and biotite micas is called a binary granite. The average density is 2.75 g/cm3 with a range of 1.74 to 2.80.
to the very basic:
Granite is crystalline rock that is harder than marble with large mineral grains But no matter how you define it, everyone can agree that Granite countertops can give your home a very pleasing look.
