Granite is a natural stone composed of quartz, feldspar and mica. It’s mined from around the world, including quarries in India, Brazil, Norway, Italy and China. The largest granite quarry in the United States is in Vermont.
The natural variation in pattern, veining and shades of color is part of the charm and beauty of granite, and perhaps one of the reasons it continues to be a top countertop choice. No other homeowner will ever have the same granite countertop as you because no two slabs of granite are exactly alike.
While granite is an extremely durable material, proper care and cleaning of your granite countertop is important to protect its beautiful appearance.
