Granite is an igneous rock and is formed from magma. Formed from molten lava then slowly cooled making it hard and dense as a diamond. Most granite intrusions are emplaced at depth within the crust, usually greater than 1.5 kilometres and up to 50 km depth within
The word granite comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a crystalline rock. Granite is used as a building material in the form of granite tiles and granite slabs for wall cladding, roofing, flooring, a variety of other interior and exterior applications and especially for counter tops, kitchen worktops and vanity units. It is also used for monuments. And as it comes from different quarries all over the world, you can choose from many colours.
