Granite is a common type of felsic intrusive igneous rock that is granular and phaneritic in texture. Granites can be predominantly white, pink, or gray in color, depending on their mineralogy. The word "granite" comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a holocrystalline rock. Strictly speaking, granite is an igneous rock with between 20% and 60% quartz by volume, and at least 35% of the total feldspar consisting of alkali feldspar, although commonly the term "granite" is used to refer to a wider range of coarse grained igneous rocks containing quartz and feldspar.
The colored and spotted granite walls give an powerfull dynamic energy to the ambient. Granite goes best with the order, simple furniture lines and simple colors, in order to avoid visual conflicts.
Granite floors present multiple advantages, from hardness (granite is the hardest rock), effectivelly waterproof and chemical stress resistant.
Abrasion resistant, easy to cut and proccess, it’s the best option for flooring, including in the high traffic areas. Granite tiles need a rigid support layer.
Granite finishing goes from mirror polished to brushed or hydro jet, with an impressive pallette of textures and colors, pointing one of the most decorative type of stone.
Granite goes best for interior and exterior works: vertical and horizontal plating, facades, stairs, fireplaces, decorative carpets, massive decorative elements. For the exterior works we recommend the flamed or brushed, antislip finishing.
