Kitchen Countertop Materials
Granite is a popular material for sculptures, statures and monuments. It’s an incredibly hard material and requires modern tools and techniques to carve in detail. Its resistance to the elements, like acid rain, means that granite has replaced marble as the top choice for outdoor construction. Throughout history, granite has been used for everything from building foundations to kitchen countertops.
Granite is a popular choice for countertops. Its crystalline structure lends itself will to lighting effects and granite ranges in colors from pink to dark grey. It’s cut from bedrock and contains many different materials, primarily quartz, mica and feldspar. The combination of so many types of rock give granite its trademark speckled appearance.
