As old as the earth, granite is an igneous rock formed from molten lava at the earth’s core. Cooled slowly over time under great pressure, granite becomes extremely hard and dense. The minerals comprising granite result in unique pattern movement and richness.
The natural flow and blending of colors into veins is part of the appeal of granite. Available in a striking array of colors, granite’s durability and longevity make it ideal for kitchen countertops and other heavily used surfaces, including tabletops.

Frequently Asked Questions
Granite, marble, soapstone and Jerusalem stone are just some of the natural stones used for kitchen countertops. The key factor that denotes a material as natural is that there are no chemicals added, and the stone was quarried from the earth and only finished in a shop, not created.
Granite is normally a coarse-grained igneous rock that is comprised of quartz, feldspars and micas. The quartz will be be the lighter color minerals with the remaining consisting of feldspars and muscovite. The dark minerals are hornblende or biotite.
Granite is by far the most common rock found in the outer crust of the planet. Granite is formed by the cooling of magma in the ground, and is an outstanding material for countertops.
No, granite countertops are not going out of style. Though the introduction of quartz and travertine has given homeowners and designers, an optional choice, granite continues to be a favorite with many people.
Marble is metamorphosed sedimentary carbonate rock. Limestone or dolomite (carbonate rocks) are the typical base minerals. The recrystallization of the carbonate minerals results in Marble.
Often, the original structure of the carbonate rock is modified during the metamorphism to render the marble unrecognizable from its original state. The swirling and veins in marble often result from mineral impurities which are in layers in the original limestone or dolomite.
Soapstone is a metamorphic rock composed of talc, quartz, mica, calcite & iron oxides. It’s soapstone’s talc content that makes it smooth and waxy to the touch, and water resistant. Soapstone has incredible durability and striking beauty.
Soapstone’s unique colour palette and artistic veining patterns give it a unique quality.
Granite is often cited as the most durable natural countertop material available and is known for resisting cracks and chips well. Like granite, marble is very strong and resistant to damage. However, it is much more porous and will stain easier than granite.
