Granite

Granite is a natural stone and has been used as a building material for many centuries. Formed by volcanic activity, granite is an igneous rock whose strength approaches that of diamonds.

Granite has tiny pits or spaces between the various mineral crystals. This is caused primarily by Biotite (small black minerals found throughout the slab). The pits do not make the granite less durable and do not qualify a slab as unusable or replaceable. Pits are common in all granite and should be expected when dealing with a natural stone material.

While granite is a very strong natural stone, it is not indestructible, it must be sealed and cared for properly.

About Granite Natural Surfaces

Granite is a natural stone and has been used as a building material for many centuries. Formed by volcanic activity, granite is an igneous rock whose strength approaches that of diamonds.

Natural granite is a material with naturally occurring variations. These variations create a one-of-a-kind look for color, tone, granularity and pattern. There are no two stones that are exactly alike. While Carolina Counters offers an online color sample of the stones variations that we carry, we recommend viewing larger slabs prior to making a final decision. 

While granite is a very strong natural stone, it is not indestructible, it must be sealed and cared for properly.

Digital photographs are small select cuts from a slab; they do not exhibit all the characteristics of a design and therefore are not fully representative of what will be installed in your home. Granite is a natural stone. We encourage you to order a physical sample to view and coordinate with exact color tones. Variations in the natural stone color, pattern, size, shape and shade are inherent and unique characteristics to be expected with this product. These variations do not affect performance and do not qualify for product replacement.
