Granite

The term granite has been applied to almost any igneous stone that can retain a polish. True granites provide many of these stones but other types of igneous stone that may fall into this classification include syenites, gabbros, dolerites, and diorites. The formation of these igneous rocks by the slow cooling of molten minerals such as quartz, feldspar and hornblende has resulted in a wide variety of colours and grain patterns.

The interlocking crystal structure imparts both the high strength and low porosity necessary for a wide range of applications other than ashlar walling, thin stone cladding and flooring; these characteristics are also important in allowing successful use of slabs that are thinner than other types of stone.

The surface finish affects the appearances of granite and those available include sawn, flame textured, fine axed, rough punched, honed, bush hammered and water jet. It is in the gloss polished form, however, that these granites reveal fully their colours and grain patterns.


Here are some examples of granites that we are able to supply. A visit to our showroom will enable you to compare colours, textures and finishes for your specific project. Samples are always available.
