What is Granite?

Granite is a light-colored igneous rock with grains large enough to be visible with the unaided eye. It forms from the slow crystallization of magma below Earth’s surface. Granite is composed mainly of quartz and feldspar with minor amounts of mica, amphiboles and other minerals. This mineral composition usually gives granite a red, pink, gray or white color with dark mineral grains visible throughout the rock. Granite countertops are a luxury upgrade in many homes kitchens and bathrooms.

Granite is the hardest natural product on earth after diamond, sapphire and ruby,. Once polished, natural granite will maintain its high gloss almost forever. It is heat, stain and scratch resistant. It is sometimes possible to scratch some of the softer granites and we always recommend use of a chopping board.

What is Quartz?

Quartz is one of the most well-known minerals on earth. It occurs in basically all mineral environments, and is the important constituent of many rocks. Quartz is also the most varied of all minerals, occurring in all different forms, habits, and colors. There are more variety names given to Quartz than any other mineral. Quartz Countertops are an upgrade to many homes counters as well.

Yes, we supply many different brands of quartz. They are manmade worktops normally made up of 93% quartz crystals (a natural product) and 7% resin (which makes it a composite). We have fantastic relationships with quartz manufacturers such as Caesarstone and Silestone as well as others.

What is Marble?

Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Geologists use the term “marble” to refer to metamorphosed limestone; however stonemasons use the term more broadly to encompass unmetamorphosed limestone.
Marble is commonly used for sculpture and as a building material. Marble countertops are porous and should really be selected very carefully before being used in a kitchen countertop.  Not a good recommendation in the kitchen coutertops for fear of staining and other problems.
