Granite is a natural stone material that is born from within the very hearts of mountains themselves. Granite is an igneous stone that forms when liquid magma and lava cool following a volcanic eruption or other major geological event. The term igneous, which is derived from the Latin word for fire, is not a misnomer in this case as this stone is literally born from fiery liquid rock.

Granite has been quarried and used in various ways since ancient times, primarily prized for its incredible density, rich color variations, and a multitude of applications. Today it is still used by many peoples and cultures for various building applications as well as decorative purposes.
