Both modern architecture as well as many of the great cathedrals of the world have gained their notoriety partially due to their use of beautiful Granite in their design. Granite is one of the most popular stones on the market today. The reasons for this are many - and will convince you why this beautiful stone is right for your specific home or business decorating needs.

Granite is as durable as it is attractive - making it a fitting choice for your home. Its hard texture makes it appropriate for a myriad of decorating purposes, including tabletops, floors, sinks, tiles, countertops, fireplaces and even fountains. Granite can also be used for your home or business' exterior, including as cladding, paving and curbing.

Unlike synthetic surfaces, Granite offers exceptional strength and longevity - resisting damage from scratches or even high heat. Similarly, Granite's polish is resistant to damage from household cleaners. This is why Granite often receives the highest overall performance ratings from not only decorators, but also decorating magazines conducting intense surveys and studies.

Generally light in color, Granite can feature hues of pink and light medium grays that virtually match every d├ęcor scheme. Granite is a coarse-grained igneous rock - comprised of Quartz and Feldspar - that is quarried all over the world (including Brazil, Canada, China, India, Italy, Spain as well as the United States).

Granite's crystalline structure features "tiny pits" or miniscule spaces between the mineral crystals. These often aren't seen on larger blocks of Granite since many feature a polished, mirror-like finish. But Granite can be just as beautiful in its natural state, featuring natural fissures that can be mistaken for cracks but are actually not structural defects but beautiful characteristics of this handsome material. You'll want to note that these variances will not impair the function or durability of Granite.

Because of this durability, Granite is often used as a cutting surface. This can result in knife blades becoming dull faster than usual. Therefore Star Marble & Tile recommends cutting and chopping on a wooden or plastic cutting board placed between the knife and the Granite.

Let Star Marble & Tile show you the many ways Granite can beautify your surroundings.
