Granite is a natural stone consisting of the minerals, quartz, feldspar and Mica. Natural veins, fissures and mineral deposits combine to give granite its beautiful and natural appearance. Its extreme hardness makes granite uncommonly durable and extremely appealing for use every day in the home. Fissures and small pits are common and in some cases can be filled during fabrication or installation. Granite does require sealing annually if you choose not to add our permanent sealer.
