Granite is...

Granite consists largely of magmatic rocks which were formed by the cooling of magma deep in the earth’s crust. The shine on granite is brought about by polishing the surface with varying grades of abrasive, leaving it easy to clean and maintain. Granite is renowned for its technical qualities and is a versatile material ideal for use almost anywhere in or around the house.

Please note...

Being one of nature's raw materials, natural stone will vary from slab to slab and batch to batch, in colour, veining and texture. Please also be aware that web images vary widely according to the specification of the monitors used to view them. We cannot guarantee the availability of every stone type in every thickness, so please call to discuss your requirements before making definite plans.
