Granite Countertops: Granite is a type of igneous rock, formed at great depths and pressures deep in the earth. The main components of granite are quartz, potassium and sodium feldspar along with bits of mica and hornblende.Granite is very hard (second only to diamonds), and durable. It can handle the heat from a hot pot set directly on the counter.
Granite Types: Granite comes in a huge number of colors and patterns. Some types of granite have a lot of movement (big sweeping swirls and colors across the human-polished surface) and character, while others are nearly solid (Black Galaxy, Absolute Black). Many are flecked with small bits of colors across a neutrally colored surface (Santa Cecilia). What is “in style” for granite types depends on where you live. Even within Florida, we find a striking difference in the most commonly requested varieties. Some people select their granite based on price, some on color, and some select their slabs to fit with a particular design scheme. Although tans, caramels, creams and browns dominate the colors in many types of granite, you can find glorious granite slabs with all sorts of colors: greys, blues, metallics, reds and greens.
