NATURAL GRANITEView Natural Granite Colors
Granite, often a general term used to describe hard and durable stone surfaces, is actually only one of many types of stone sold for countertop applications. Granite is one of the most durable countertop surfaces you can buy. Granite is strong, heat and scratch resistant and comes in a variety of colors, patterns and grain structure.
Granite is a common type of igneous rock composed mainly of quartz, different types of feldspars, micas, and hornblende, along with varying amounts of the elements aluminum, calcium, iron, and magnesium.
Although granite is very strong and durable, it is porous. Sealing the stone is recommended to prevent staining. Granite is typically one of the most affordable stone countertop options and is readily available.
Ideal for most applications, including exterior settings.

Natural Quartzite, not to be confused with Engineered Quartz, has become very popular over the years. Quartzite offers more of a "marble" look, while providing a very hard and durable surface suitable for kitchen countertops and other countertop applications.

Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that has been formed from sandstone and has been altered by heat and pressure over time.
Like most natural stones, Quartzite should be sealed to protect from staining and are typically more expensive than traditional granite materials.
